4j. The Lean

After a basic step, the gent leads the lady to the right side cuddle move on counts 1 and 2. Then he leans. After the couple straightens up, it's time for the backstep. The lean (both descent and ascent) may extend any even number of counts (e.g. 4 counts, 6 counts, 8 counts) before the backstep. In the above video, the lean extends 6 counts before the dancers backstep.

Holding the lean for any even
number of counts would work.
