Another way to add on to our basic routine is to use our feet in a new way! In robotics, our feet do not lift off the ground; this still stays true for this step, but it will give a different look to our steps. I'm sure most people have heard of MOON WALKING, where you drag your feet across the ground and give the illusion that you are gliding. We will go over the basics, and a few ways to add this in to our routine. Practice this new step a few times before trying to add it in to old routines until it becomes more comfortable. Feel free to add in levels that we learned in the last lesson, and as always move at your own pace and stay in your own comfort zone! -NYV0027C
