The basic walk has 8 key poses:

1. Contact: the right leg is straight, foot makes contact with the ground
2. Down: weight is on the right leg, left foot comes up. center of gravity is lower, as the body prepares to make the step.
3. Passing: the left foot is passing the right leg. center of gravity starts moving up
4. Up: the right leg is straight, left foot is forward, body leans forward, center of gravity is at the highest point in the cycle

5. Contact: the left leg is straight, foot makes contact
6. Down
7. Passing
8. Up

Repeat!
