Up Traveling backwards in outside partner position: Think about lengthening/stretching/swinging the right side as Lady takes the head left, not rotating the body. If the body just rotates, the center actually goes backwards. 

Arms belong to partner. Head left to balance. Stretch in the body is the connecting point.
