As far as I can make out, long before the V. Waltz, part of this dance which was called the Volta in the 1500`s was to lift the lady from the right side to the left side of the man and back again after a Reverse movement for a Natural. Some that I have danced with lately, i think it would be better if they lifted me.
The word Volta in Italian means turn.
The Foxtrot as danced up to 1920. The Reverse Turn was a Reverse Viennese. Cross with a Feather Finish
