*This leaning movement can be varied by torqueing the torso left and dropping the L shoulder, or perhaps leaning directly back, lifting the hips. The hands may cross at the chest, or drop down gracefully to the hips. This is a 2-beat moment to breathe and indulge in your musicality as a dancer, interpreting Keith Urban's message any way you wish.
