Posted:You can do any trick that you can do forward backward. Just your hands are doing the opposite of what they normally are.
i.e. backwrd thread the needle hands go under arms instead of over them

Posted:backward swings can lead into allsorts of stuff.

Reverse figure 8
reverse weave
reverse crossover into reverse butterfly looks good (the overhead rev. butterfly to finish.....)
rev. 5 beat weave
rev. turns...

the list goes on....you can do all sorts of wraps too. As herby said - you can do everything from reverse that you can do from forwards. If you can't, you have something new (and possibly painful) to experiment with until you can.
