I believe its only fair to point out, that, ALL techn. books are only " guides ".
Originally designed for teachers doing prof. exams .

As to The " wordy " explanations given here,which are fine,but if ALL steps,actions, were described in this manner, it would take volumes !!.

Ya cant learn to dance from a book !!

I have yet to see a competent lady dancer on a Backward Walk swing any part of the movement. What I do see is a bending of the knee of the standing foot to the front, with the body weight over that standing foo,t as the moving foot is sent to the rear on the toe Which does not lower untill the now moving foot passes.

If you want to disqualify anything without a fixed radius from deserving the label "swing" then it might be reasonable to say that the foot does not swing in a movement where the knee articulates to shorten and lengthen the leg.

But the upper leg (femur) would still swing.
