Cupkanie – typical for Podhale region dances; light stamping in place performed to end a part of dance in a suite or to end the entire dance (for example, in góralski). Derived from the word cupnoć, meaning “to stamp” in Podhale local dialect.
Cwał - a leaping step, always performed sideways in the direction of dance, with a slight jump onto the closing foot (basic step in krakowiak). If performed while facing the direction of dance, it is called galop.
Harkan (harkan step) - in harkan, closing the feet is accompanied by a distinctive raising of the leg diagonally in the direction of dance: if with the right leg against the sun (counterclockwise), then the left leg is raised diagonally to the right, in front of the right leg; if with the left leg with the sun (clockwise), then the right leg is raised diagonally to the left (in front of the left leg). After a sequence of two steps to the right and two to the left, the same steps (with raising the legs diagonally) are repeated twice in place, followed by a triple stomp with the free foot (left, if the circle was moving with the sun, or right, if the circle started to move against the sun).
