It is the making use of, and the processing of that which we have received, and the joy of its fruit. These movements are arc-like, magnetic.

11th measure: make another 90°-pivot to the left, now facing the center. The weight of the body is on the left foot. The right foot is lifted and moves slightly towards the left one without touching it. At the same time the arms swing down in an arc-like movement and then rise up horizontally to the left as in the 1st measure.
