well for something that does not have many steps in it it certainly takes a while to master

I've been trying to take SwingWaltz's advice on the back diagonal and large step to the side.  I'm still not comfortable around corners but I seem to get through them with two different partners without leaving my partner behind or having dodgy footwork or incidents of kicked or stepped on toes.. so I think it's improved considerably. Thanks for all the advice!

Hi..

The ability to navigate corners whilst completing reverse VW is done so through primarily the mans head weight and not his foot position. Due to the speed at which the music is played it is difficult to attempt to take a 'specified' length or direction. The man should feel that he is using his head weight to assist in achieving the slight increase of turn required to successfully rotate as a couple.
