We worked on forward ochos variations that starts from interrupting after the forward step. A normal forward ocho: pivot -> step -> pivot. Today we did pivot -> step / rebound -> [options], and worked on this for both open and closed sides.

Most of the options today involves a subsequent travel step at an acute angle with significant torsion. These are resolved in either continuation in the same direction (like a giro), or pivot in place that results in a forward ocho in the other angular direction. One of the non-travel option is a calesita with the extended front leg.
