Beginning with the left foot behind, in passo naturale, turn per fianco so that the right shoulder is in front, and bend and separate the knees a little, and jump up about four inches, opening the legs somewhat, and in falling to the ground bring them together [restringerai] as you were at the beginning, noting that the left toes should be where the right heel was. And this can also be done per contrario. It is called this because you you widen and split [spaccano] the legs.
