Follower

  1. S: RF back | Backing DC | THT | - | Sway(S) | Rise e/o 1

    • Lady's head is to left at this time. Keep previous head shape (maybe think about doing more).

    • THT footwork: There is a bound/rise action. dancing the last T footwork is to dance body forward to get onto Toe of LF. It creates lightness through the legs.

    • Release L leg faster.

  2. &: LF back in Fallaway, L side leading | Backing DC, moving down LOD | T | - | Sway(S) | Up. Lower e/o 2

    • LF bigger step, more like a side step LOD. follow Man's hips. Weight onto L leg. Don't over turn shoulders or turn shoulders early. Shoulder is flat, going into Fallaway.

    • Stay very left, don't get in front of Man.

    • It feels like Man stays in the fallaway longer (compared to Fallaway and Slip Pivot).

    • Default is a reverse weave action, if leader wants to do fallaway, he will block at the hips, which makes lady open immediately and do a fallaway.

    • Turn head into PP. position. Keep volume/space with Man (think about even more shape).

    • Use glute hip more forward to Man, shoulder toward Man (helps to create the PP shape), do not open up side.

  3. Q: RF back in CBMP and Fallaway | Backing DC, moving down LOD | T | Start to turn L | Sway(S) | CBM | Down. Rise e/o 3

    • Keep head to right.

    • Keep body to Man, very stretched. Keep head volume with Man.

    • Cushion the knees

  4. Q: LF to side and slightly fwd | Pointing to LOD | T | 3/8 between 3-4, body turns less | Sway(S) | Up. Lower e/o 4

    • Swivel RF, not turning body and then step LF fwd. L side positive. Keep shoulder parallel to Man.

    • Head options:

      • can keep head to R all the way till feather finish.

      • Or at this time, take the time to turn head back to left, articulate, don't rush the head. stretch to left, don't fall into Man's space

    • Feels like left shoulder is leading and stretching forward

    • Articulate head, no rush, smooth movement.

  5. Q: RF fwd in CBMP, OP | Facing LOD | T | Slight body turn | Sway(S) | | Down. Rise e/o 5

    • Body diagonally stretched.

  6. QQQS: 4-7 overturned Basic Weave | T TH TH T | | Sway(SLLS) | CBM on step 6 and 9

    • QQ: swing R side, and keep side leading position. Do not finish square and flat to Man.

    • Changing angle from right to left, spine and head to left

    • Head turns back to left when RF to side/back closing up with Man.

    • Release leg at very end to give room to Man to step.
