Even though the step that Iztutea is basically very similar to the one passed down to us through the generations, Iztueta says that after marking the tip of the foot, the heel and the tip of the foot, the outer part of the ankle has to be hit against the shinbone of the foot on the ground. In other words, Iztueta describes here a movement that could very well be a muxeta. Tradition has not preserved this movement in the tapping, which is why we have here opted to the tapping that has been traditionally passed down to us.
Thus, to perform the tapping with the right foot, the dantzari starts with a demi-plié and then taps the floor with the tip of his right foot. Afterwards, he does the same with the heel of the right foot and then taps the floor again with the tip of his right foot. The movements have to be performed in the direction of the feet in the initial position. The tip of the foot that is moved has to tap the floor next to the heel of the motionless foot, and when he taps the floor with the heel, the knee has to be straight and the tip of the open foot pointing outwards.
The video shows two sets of tapping, one of which is danced with the right foot and the other with the left foot.
The tapping is performed as follows:
[The dantzari] has to tap the floor with the big toe of his right foot, raising the heel up as far as possible and with the foot facing outwards. He then has to tap the floor with the edge of the same heel, keeping the tip of the foot raised and pointing outwards. He then has to tap the floor again with the tip of the big toe of the same foot, as he did initially. When performing these three hits, [the dantzari] has to tap the outer maleolous of the ankle against the mid area of the left shinbone of the foot that is on the floor and has to place [the foot] on the floor four inches away from the left foot, with the heels opposite each other and the tips pointing out to either side. This would be one tapping. To perform the other one, the left foot is used to perform the same movements that had been done with the right.
