Hi tangomonkey I attended weekend of workshops with Detlef and Melina one of which was about The Cross and their ideas on exits therefrom. The maths go something like this In their opinion there are 5 possible exits from The Cross: 1 Back step of follower (forward for the leader) 2 Forward ocho 3 Backward ocho 4 90 degree pivot and forward step left 5 90 degree pivot and forward step right these steps can be done by the lead or the follow so that gives 25 combinations This can be done with or without leading a weight change when the follower does her Cross. This then doubles up the 25 combinations above. Then there are 4 possible foot combinations going into the cross 1+2 leaders left foot weight bearing in parrallel and cross system 3+4 leaders right foot weight bearing in parrallel and cross system Nobody was sure whether you could then multiply up the 25x2 combinations above as some of the foot combinations may not allow all 5 of the exits listed above. However if they could that would have given 200 possible entry and exit combinations.
