Can someone tell me detail footsteps for "Hairpin" Please.

Is it "Heel Toe, Heel Toe, and Toe Heel?

How about "Curve feather" in Foxtrot? Are they the same?[ I don't unserstand why using Instant UBBcode]

It looks like something happened to your post and it got cut off. The Curved Feather is a syllabus figure, so I can just take the footwork for that out of the book -- man's part is HT, T, TH (RF, LF, RF OP); lady's is TH, T, TH. I can't be sure about the Hairpin because I've never learned it and the Popular Variations book I see it in isn't quite as detailed as the technique book. It appears that the footwork is the same, HT, T, TH for the man. What's the difference between them? I think the turn on the Hairpin is sharper/quicker and possibly more than the Curved Feather, but you're probably better off getting the answer from someone who knows the Hairpin better than I do.
