1. Rolling heel leads for forward walks: flex the knee and trace the floor with the toe until it is one stride length forward, then push off the supporting (sending) foot and do a quick flip of the foot to land with a soft heel lead. Roll from the heel through the whole foot until you reach the toe and repeat.
2. Use rolling count rather than straight count, e.g., &a1, &a2 rather than 1&2.
3. Use an action-reaction or initiate-respond technique for lead/follow. This means that the leader initiates the movement and the follower responds to the movement rather than doing it at the same time or trying to anticipate the movement.
