Follower

  1. Q: LF fwd in CBMP | Down LOD | H

    • Very upward, strong stretch on right side.

    • Styling option: simply staying left, or, look at each other. More neutral position, so you have more to "give" in the next Corte

  3. S: LF fwd small step in CBMP | Down LOD | H

Note:

    • Rocks may be danced down LOD or DC
