A breakdown of the step by Bernd Baumgarten
3 Kick fwd with left foot.
Kick low, leg extended, but don’t point with toes. Right after, relax left knee.
As in ordinary walking, arms swing “against” the feet, i.e. here: right arm forward, left
4 Step forward with left foot.
5 Kick across with right foot.
Kick higher than on 3, swinging extended leg up and left. Don’t point with toes.
Left arm swings up and across your chest; right arm swings back, maybe even slightly
around behind your body.
6 Let extended right leg swing down past right side.
7 Continuing smoothly, swing extended right leg diagonally back.
Don’t point with toes. Right arm swings forward; left arm swings back.
8 Swinging right leg towards left leg from behind, jump onto right foot on 8, which you
put right where your left foot was standing.
& Hop a few inches forward on your right foot, turning body 1/8 turn (45 degrees) right.
1 Bend right knee. Lower body. Tap toes of left foot diagonally back onto the floor.
Left arm, elbow bent, swings forward; left arm swings back. Crouch a bit.
2 Letting body move up to normal, flick left leg, i.e. raise lower leg to the rear.
Turn body 1/8 turn (45 degrees) to the left, such that you face original direction again.
