Waltz - Natural Turn

The Natural Turn is a is a simple Waltz step lasting 6 beats and is performed along the line of dance. The Natural Turn results in a 3/4 turn to the right and starts with the man stepping forwards with his right foot, the Reverse Turn results in a 3/4 turn to the left and starts with the man stepping forwards with his left foot. Both the Natural Turn and the Reverse Turn can be linked by the Left Foot Closed Change or the Right Foot Closed Change to give you a combination of 4 steps, a total of 18 Beats.

For example Start with a Natural Turn, this finishes with the weight on the mans left foot which means you can then dance the Right Foot Closed Change which finishes with the weight on the mans left foot enabling you to continue with the Reverse Turn which finishes with the weight on the mans right foot so that lastly you can add on the Left Foot Closed Change. Once completed you can start again from the beginning.

This gives you a combination of 4 steps that can adequately enable you to get around the dance floor and perform a basic Waltz. Because the 'Closed Changes' are 3 beats long they enable you to transfer weight so that the correct foot becomes free to start the desired next step.
