aka backward ocho

Typically: Follower stands on RF (Right Foot) and puts the LF (Left Foot) backwards while turning her frame slightly CCW (Counter-Clock Wise). The LF arrives to the right of the RF(!), thus making the first half of the '8' figure. The Follower then lifts the RF, spins CW (Clockwise) on the LF and does a mirrored copy of the previous step, now standing on the LF. When finished, she again stands on the RF, approximately on the same spot where she came from, with both feet together, ready to do another backward ocho, or another figure.
