We start with a low linear voleo, front or back, with the free leg’s knee extended. Then we pivot the base and rotate the free leg. The foot hovers over roughly the same point of the dance floor during the butterfly as the free leg changes from front to back linear voleo, or from back to front.
- From front linear voleo, the free leg rotates internally during the pivot. After the pivot, flex both knees to maximize the back linear voleo.
- From back linear voleo, the free leg rotates externally during the pivot. After the pivot, extend both knees to maximize the front linear voleo.
The mark is a pro linear voleo with a pivot. To hold the Revel’s leg in the air for the pivot, use conservation of co-contraction and make sure there is no change of embrace (no lateral or vertical shoulder flexion, no elbow flexion) during the pivot.
