Now do a similar turn to the right to face the front again. Remember not to move either foot off the floor. Turn a few times - front, back, front, back. Turning 180 degrees as you have been doing is known as a half (1/2) turn. Now, starting with the feet together, do the following:- Step R forward; pivot 1/2 turn L; step R forward; pivot 1/2 turn L. The left foot does not move away from its position on the floor throughout. Do this a few times, but not too fast or you will get dizzy. Try the opposite direction:- Step L forward; pivot 1/2 turn R; step L forward; pivot 1/2 turn R. Ensure that you do not lift the right foot from the floor. Try a few of these Right Pivot Turns, close your feet together and do a few Left Pivot Turns as explained previously. Note that a Right Pivot is preceded by stepping the L foot forward and vice versa. For a continuous sequence dance:- Step R forward; pivot 1/2 turn L; step R forward; pause for one beat; step L forward; pivot 1/2 turn R; step L forward; pause for one beat. The timing is simply 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8. Practice this to music.
