Rear Arabesque Walk

Keep the head and torso straight and in line throughout the series. Stand erect with your hands stretched above your head. Pick one foot off the floor. Balancing on the stance foot, lean the torso rearward while the free leg points in front of you (like tipping your body on the hip of the stance leg).
Keeping your balance on the stance foot, lean forward so the free leg points behind you - try to touch the floor. Come upright, and land with the free foot one step behind. Repeat on alternating feet: lean backward, lean forward, step backward, switch feet.
