Since October 2011, I have been posting articles titled “Memories of Figure Names” on Facebook group “Ballroom & Latin Dancer Memory Lane”. I decided to leave those articles on this HP for record.

Memories of Figure Names (6) / Reverse Turn and Feather Finish

The heel pull in the second half of the Reverse Turn is really stylish and I thought it was a recent variation, but actually this is the original, which was called the Open Turn in the time of 1922. Then, the Feather Finish was born when the shoe got caught in the Heel Pull!

Whenever I dance the Reverse Turn in Foxtrot, this story is in my mind.
