Here's how to dance the Holubiec (Heels Click Step) according to Polish dance authority, Ada Dziewanowska:



The Basic Holuciec to the Right is:
Odd measures: as you sweep straight right arm in front and diagonally upward to the right, do 2 small hops on left foot, moving slightly to the right, and click heels together at the height of each hop, legs straight and feet extended during clicks (cts 1,2). 
Even measures: returning right fist to own hip, dance 3 stamps (RLR-cts 1, &, 2); hold (ct &).

Holubiec to the Left is done with opposite arm, footwork and directions.
