Dance action: The dancer does an individual about-face turn (180 degrees) in place, turning toward partner
unless the body flow dictates otherwise. If alone (i.e., no partner), the dancer turns toward the center
of the set. If the solo dancer is facing directly toward or away from the center of the set, the turn may
be in either direction.
Ending formation: Individual dancer
Styling: Isolated dancer: Arms in natural dance position. Adjacent dancers connected with a handhold:
Release the handhold, perform the dance action, and reconnect with the appropriate handhold (couple
or mini-wave). Couples promenading in Skater's position can U-Turn Back without releasing
handholds by turning towards each other.
