To maximize these sensations and get them consistently, make sure not to add any pivot to the cross. Although we often use it after a spiral move like a wrap, the technique is to mark and revel the cross as a diagonal projection from back projection toward its destination.
Neither mark nor revel should turn the revel’s hips during the maneuver.
The revel also needs to flex her base leg’s hip and knee and extend the ankle joint to allow the crossing leg’s toes to arrive to a position slightly ahead of the current base leg’s toes. This position facilitates fast and smooth transfer.
