    Originally posted by Vicky on tribe.net.I agree with Carrie, although my troupe doesnt pivot bump clockwise, only counter clockwise. br/br/Also when we turn with a pivot bump, we make the turn a bit slow when in arm position 1. When were in arm position 2, we let our left arm curl in front of us a bit and make the turn faster. Makes the two turns look a bit different to the audience. We usually do these turns back-to-back, first in position 1, then in position 2. ^_~

And theres really not a cue, other than the right arm sweeping down and then into position as the r hip is bumping.

    Need a clarification : is the second turn (with arm position 2) obligatory after the first turn (with arm position 1) ? Or is it optional ? Thanks ! 🙂

    As far as I know it's entirely optional. Just one possible variation.

    OK, here's my question about turning the pivot bump clockwise.  Isn't that like going moving choo choo backwards, which it doesn't do?  I turn both directions but it just seems to me cw is going backwards.

    You can totally turn right (Clockwise) with the pivot bump. It's only done in four counts though. This is because you are going backwards and the sight lines for the lead is skewed. So keeping it to 4 counts makes sure everyone is on the same page.

    Jesse, I turn the pivot bump in eight, either direction, unless it's a second turn then it may be a little faster.  Is 8 too long?

    The way I learned it the backwards turning Pivot Bump is always 4 counts because you're losing the sight of the lead too quickly to estimate how fast she goes.The forwards turning Pivot Bump (Arms 1 as well as Arms 2) can be anything fom 2-8 counts, depending on the music and the lead's mood. 😉

    That's what I learnt too. Anti-clockwise is flock of birds, clockwise is in 4. Although since it was Jesse Stanbridge who taught it to me it's not surprising I agree with her!
