2b. Hesitation Right Turn

The Hesitation Right Turn is a very simple sequence of a single backward hesitation followed by the first half of the Right Box Turn. It's not quite as common as the Hesitation Left Turn, however it does have some limited practical application (see below). It is also useful as an academic exercise, and prepares the student for the Right Pivot Turn, a derivative of the Hesitation Right Turn found in the full bronze syllabus.

Because it is a right turn, this pattern does not serve as a practical method for turning corners around the counter-clockwise line of dance. But the following are a few examples of possibilities for use:

In a corner. Beginning Bronze syllabus.
Forward basic with 1/4 turn to right. End with man facing wall.
Two Hesitation Right Turns with 1/4 turn each. End with man facing new line of dance.

In a corner. Intermediate Bronze syllabus.
1-4 Right Box Turn with 3/8 turn. End man backing line of dance.
Hesitation Right Turn with either 1/8, 1/4, or 3/8 turn to right to face diagonal center, line of dance, or diagonal wall of new line of dance, respectively.

Along line of dance. Beginning or Intermediate Bronze syllabus.
Hesitation Right Turn with 1/4 turn. End man facing wall. Follow with Promenade or Side Sway.

Starting with full bronze, it becomes more practical to employ the Right Pivot Turn instead. For more information, see Right Pivot Turn.
