You will be moving your hands in different directions.
  • Stand up and put your hands out in front of you
  • Point your index fingers toward each other
  • Move your right index finger in a forward circular direction about the size of a basketball. Keep your left hand still
  • While continuing with your right finger, move your left index finger in a backward circular direction that is bigger than your right side. Your left finger should overlap your right finger.
  • Try to move your fingers so that they start at the same time and finish one circle at the same time.
  • Vary your speeds so that your left finger is slower or faster than your right hand.
  • Try to start with your left finger and overlap your right finger while creating circles with different directions.
