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 tends to go backwards.
Arms belong to partner. Head left to balance. Stretch body and stay connected to Man.
