Now she wants me to add an 8 step mohawk. Well that's what she calls it. Also, it's "A dancey little element."
It's NOT 'the' 8 step mohawk. Below is a 'real' 8 step mohawk. Crossover, mohawk, back stroke, back step over (or crossover, I can't tell), turn forward with a back inside mohawk (facing into the circle).
What she wants me to do is a kicked up modification of this. Forward crossover, crossover, mohawk, Crossed STEP BEHIND while going backwards, cross in front, turn forward.
Uh, Going backwards, and crossing the free foot behind the skating foot! This is me:
So for me, the real trick was the little 'kick' forward before the actual step behind. Oh, and pointing my toe forward with all the strength in my tiny little body, until I brought my my foot back. And keeping my thighs together.
Then I remembered I'd posted about this before, only forwards!
