Title: Drag Hesitation
Level: Silver (ISTD); (?) (IDTA)
Rotation: ⅜ to Left
The Drag Hesitation is listed in the 'Additional Figures' section of the ISTD syllabus. This is because it is not a required figure for examination. For the sake of competition and choreography, it can be used just like any other figure.
Historical Note: In our old editions of The Revised Technique by Alex Moore, the Drag Hesitation is listed amongst the Standard Variations (Silver Figures). We can only speculate as to how it came to its current position -- possibly having been removed entirely before being re-inserted as an additional figure in the latest amendment.
IDTA Syllabus: The Drag Hesitation is listed under 'Additional Figures in The Waltz and Basic Principles by Guy Howard (2011). It is not specified at which level it is to be danced.
