Introduction: A Newcomer level move.
Frame: Latin. Count: 4 beats. Continues from Basic, so start on the 2nd beat. Usage: Rumba, Cha-Cha.
Leaders and Followers: The exact same moves, simply mirrored.

Instructions (Leader Perspective)
Normally, you've just finished a New Yorker or a Hand-to-hand or a Spot turn. Depends on your routine. From there, you come back into frame. Your left arm comes up, bringing the follower's hand with it. Your right arm slides back into place.

Now, the leader has the easiest job. Seriously. You do a Rumba or a Cha-cha basic. That's your footwork.
Upper Body
Your left arm is the one that does the spinning. Always. Regardless of where you are.


Instructions (Follower Perspective)
When coming back into frame, do make sure that you are receptive. A frame takes two to make and if you're too far away or your arm doesn't allow for the leader's arm to go under, it's going to be an awkward few beats before you get back on track.
