Summary:

• In a basic walk the center of gravity rises from contact pose to passing position then drops again returning to contact.
• This rising and falling motion textures the timing with the body slowing in as it rises and slowing out as it drops back down.
• The center of gravity has a side-to-side motion synched with the up-down motion.
• In slow walks the swaying makes an infinity-shaped loop while it’s U-shaped for fast walks.
