Cadenza battuta (Santucci)

Full name of step in source: 
Rule 76. Cadenza battuta. p76

Beginning with the left foot behind, in passo naturale, raise the left toes, and sliding the left heel at the same time, raise it per fianco to the left-hand side, then let it fall back, two inches away from the right, and put it on the ground with with the toes turned a little per fianco, and in placing the left, thrust the right forwards, about half a palm, and stamp it on the ground in the manner of one who wishes to put on a shoe. It is so called because in doing this cadenza you stamp the feet, one after the other. This can also be done per contrario.
