To answer the original question as to when the fall stops, I would say each bar is a fall. Use gravity to take you through each bar.

does not the fall end at the end of three? but there should be a smooth transition to create ebb and flow.

I think the pendulum (or swing set) is a perfect example of a consecutive "falls" linking together via smooth transitions.  As to whether it happens to "three", that's illusive, because at point of the three are we talking about?  The "T", the "H", the "R", or one of the "E"s?  I think it's safest to let the music decide.  The additional layer of a count can impede musicality significantly.

That's where we all (should) end up - and I suspect most people do else they remain stiff and discoordinated.  The problem for most is how to get there and I actually think exploring many different approaches is a natural way to find your own best way to dance.  The more you can move naturally to the beat of the music the better you are doing...

There is also a difference between foot rise and body rise.  Both have to be taken into consideration and timed to the specific piece of music and how it moves you.

Now that I've had a bit of time off and now come back I've had time to reflect on the difference between what I did, what I was expected to do and what I do now.  They are all three the same and yet all three different.  When I was actively and heavily competing I was only doing what I was told, but had little time to seek out information and reflect on what I was being told, for the most part.  When I left the competitive arena but was still coaching and also teaching I was understanding through my students what my coaches had asked of me.  Now I ask questions, seek put information and listen more closely, not only to others but to myself, to give my students the best I can.
