Text Description:To do step touches, start with your back straight, and your shoulders back and down. step out with your right foot, and bring your left foot in to meet it. Then, step out with your left foot, and bring your right foot in to meet it. When you step out, bring both arms straight out to your sides, so your body is making the shape of a cross or a print letter T. When you bring your foot in to meet it, return your arms to your sides. Your arms will go out to shoulder height each time you step out.

Text Description:Bring one knee up toward your chest, then back down so that both feet are flat on the floor. Repeat with the other knee. This is basically an exaggerated march. For this exercise, extend both arms straight up when you bring one knee up, and bend your elbows so your hands are roughly at shoulder height each time both feet touch the ground.

Text Description:Stand with feet together, and knees slightly bent. The idea is to jump so you are getting some air under your feet. If you are unable to jump, rise up onto the balls of your feet and come back down. At the same time, bend your elbows and tuck them into your waist. Make small circles with your forearms, as if you are turning an imaginary jump rope.
