6 Count To 8 Count

A 6 count figure can be extended to 8 counts by adding a kick ball change for both partners on (7-a-8).

Since the lead for kick ball change appears to be the same as for swivels (leader's LH rotated left/right in the axis from leader to follower), I imagine the follower may optionally swivel on (7-8) with leader executing a kick ball change, as swivels are not an option for the leader.
