Lesson 10: Turning Link

In the Turning Link, forward motion involves stepping to your partner's right side. Motion is achieved through pulls and pushes. A pull brings you and your partner together, while a push takes you apart. A two-hand hold is maintained throughout. By pivoting on count "2," you will eliminate the awkward appearance of pigeon-toes.
