Title: Open Impetus
Level: Silver (ISTD), (IDTA)
Rotation: Up to ⅜ to Right
The Open Impetus can be used any time there is a Heel Pull for the man,
including after 1-3 Natural Turn, 1-5 Natural Twist Turn, 1-6 Reverse Wave,
and 1-12 Extended Reverse Wave (IDTA only). After a Curved Feather, the
first step of the Open Impetus will be taken Outside Partner.
A note on Syllabus Amalgamations
In the IDTA syllabus, the Open Impetus is listed in conjunction with the
Weave from PP. This makes these two exit figures appear to be the only
ones permissible. In reality, any Promenade Figure may follow the
Open Impetus. Since our aim is to break each amalgamation into its
smallest usable parts, we have listed the Open Impetus individually.
