That's funny, because we have a standard joke at our studio: Whenever a two-step is played, you're supposed to say, "This is a two-step.  It is not a one-step, nor is it a three-step or a four-step.  [Assume Monty Python voice]  Five... is right out!"

Well, they CLAIM its a one step but I definitely saw their legs do two steps AND there was at least 5 'step' variations in their routine.  Sure it was boring but one-step?  I don't think so.

To do a one step really effectively you need to be a theoretical monopod (TM applied for).

which is a creature invented my my prof in england to teach the mechanics of movement.  A theoretical monopod simplifies the issues of weight, gravity, inertia and movement.  I've always been rather fond of the creature ever since....
