Partners are facing same direction, man to the left and slightly forward of the woman. Man’s hands are held at or above his shoulder level, with his palms facing forward and his fingers pointed up or diagonally up. Woman’s left arm is extended behind man’s upper back or head. Woman is holding man’s left hand with her left hand and his right hand with her right hand, usually with his fingertips between her fingers and thumb. It is typically light hand contact. Hand placements and handholds may be adjusted for partner height differences or personal comfort.
