1-2: 1 tendu front, close

&3&4: 2 faster tendu, closing on the count

5: plié and tendu front

6: rond de jambe to the side

7: close 5th front

&8: tendu side, close 5th back

Reverse from the back

Repeat front and back, for a total of 32 counts


Set 2:

1: tendu front

2: plié in 4th

3: tendu inside leg back

4: plié in 4th

5: tendu outside leg front

6: plié on standing leg

7: rond de jambe to the side

8: close.

Repeat en croix, and soutenue to repeat whole combination on the other side.
