Hesitation With Turn / Arthur Murray Turn

This is a forward hesitation followed by the second half of a left turning box (from RF).

Two Way Turn

This is a sequence of:

  • From facing DC, 3/8 left box turn to backing LOD
  • 3/8 left box turn to facing DW

Forward & Back Twinkle / Turning Twinkle

Or this video.

Although the official name for the figure is "turning twinkle", to me this is more of a forward/backward twinkle than a turning one.

This figure is a sequence of the following:

  1. twinkle to promenade (1-3)
  2. promenade close (4-6)
  3. back twinkle to promenade (7-9)
  4. promenade close (10-12)
