This lauarin has been reconstructed from Iztueta's description. This step has not been passed down to us, but it is very similar to the one that several veteran dantzaris have been witnessed performing.
The movement that Iztueta describes at the start of each of the four movements comprising the lauarin zaharra (ancient lauarin) has been performed here as the moucheté or muxeta, which are well-established in various dance traditions. Therefore, in order to begin each movement to one side, the dantzari performs a muxeta and, then, he turns his body and place the foot with which he has danced the muxeta on the floor and stands on tip-top with the other foot. He begins to the right and, therefore, the first movement starts with the muxeta to the right. He then performs the same movement to the left, the third to the right and during the fourth movement, the dantzari return to the initial position to the left.
According to Iztueta, this step consists of four movements and it therefore has to be performed four times, twice to each side.
The lauarin or four whiskers are performed as follows:
Lifting only the right foot with the tip of the foot pointing sideward, move it outwards to touch the outer maleolous of the right ankle with the middle calf of the left foot, which [the dantzari] keeps on the floor. He then places it on the floor half a span from the left foot, with the tip behind and the heel looking forwards. When [the dancer] finally places it on the floor, he has to immediately lift the left foot in such a way that the inside of his heel touches his right big toe and his body is turned towards the right. This is what is known as the lauarin or four whiskers.
As I have already indicated, [the dantzari] has to only lift his left foot with the tip of the foot pointing sideward and he move it outwards to touch the outer maleolous of the left ankle with the middle calf of the right foot, which [the dantzari] keeps on the floor. He then places it on the floor half a span from the left foot, with the tip behind and the heel looking forwards. When he places the heel on the floor, he immediately has to lift his right foot with the inner part of his heel touching the big toes of left foot and with his body looking towards the left. This is the second lauarin. Each lauarin or cuatro pelos is always performed as four.
