Follower

  1. Q: LF fwd | Facing DC | T | start to turn L | CBM | Rise e/o preceding step. Up.

    • Lady completes the turn with feet between 1-2, making 2nd step 'side and slightly back'.

  2. Q: RF to side and slightly back | Backing DW | T | 1/4 between 1-2. Body turns less | Up

  3. Q: LF back in CBMP | Backing DW | T | -- | 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.

  4. Q: RF diag back | Backing DW | T | -- | Up

  5. Q: LF crosses in front of RF | Backing DW | T | -- | Up

  6. Q: RF diag back | Backing DW | TH | -- | Up. Lower e/o 6

  7. S: LF back in CBMP | Backing DW | T | -- | CBM
