nioftofant 1.Thanks for the information. It seems there is a tendency for a person to wrongly turn on the first step. It means to do it correctly relies a lot on the lady not to anticipate the move

As we're talking about IDTA (International) Foxtrot technique, note that turn does commence on 1, with 1/8 to R between 1 & 2, 1/8 between 2 & 3 and CBM on 1 & 3.

We need to be careful that we are all using the same definitions and meaning of the terms used in the book.
For International style the IDTA use the term "straight" solely in relation to sway, where it is understood to mean 'no sway'. It has no bearing on the direction of movement or turn of body or feet.
I agree that we often see turn taken too early. The turn does commence on 1, mainly due to the use of CBM, but the step is still taken forward. Starting the turn too early results in the RF moving diagonally forward.

Telemark Be careful when quoting from a book. When you write. 1/8 of a turn between 1 & 2 . Is that beats one and two, or steps one and two. It would be better to write an 1/8 of a turn at the end of the first step which is a Slow . And what is most important is what is our alignment at the beginning of the first step. I take it we wish to finish backing the LOD. So watch the amounts of turn as well as our starting alignment.

"Telemark Be careful when quoting from a book."

I don't need to take care over such elementary applications of technique, thanks.

"I take it we wish to finish backing the LOD"

We don't.
