Measure 3

 Counts 2 and 3, take a two count step forward on the left foot. The step is taken up on the ball of the foot. Be sure to use two counts to complete the step, do not step on one count and hold on the second. At the same time, the arms open to the forward diagonals, remaining parallel to the floor. The forward diagonals are the directions half way between forward and side, towards the corners of an imaginary square that is around you.

 On count 1 take two steps forward, left then right. Each steptakes 1/2 count. The steps are in low level so the knees are bent. The arms use the whole count to rise forward. The arms finish parallel to the floor.
