Syllabus Level
ISTD: Bronze – IDTA: Bronze
The Outside Change is a left turning Bronze waltz figure, which may end in closed position or promenade position.

The Outside Change was introduced to the waltz syllabus as a "Named Variation" (the equivalent of Gold today),[1] and eventually made its way over the "Member's Syllabus" (Silver)[2] to the "Associate Syllabus" (Bronze),[3] where it has remained ever since. Like the Feather Finish in foxtrot, the Outside Change forms the ending to the weaves in waltz: the Basic Weave and the Weave from PP. Portions of the Outside Change are also incorporated in the Turning Lock, Open Telemark, Closed Telemark and Fallaway Natural Turn. It is also featured in the IDTA Syllabus amalgamation Running Spin Turn + Outside Change.

Both the Waltz and Basic Principles and the Ballroom Technique[4] note that while the steps 1-2 of the Outside Change to PP are identical to those of the regular Outside Change,[5] the alignment of step 3 depends on the subsequent figure. The Outside Change to PP could thus have as many as three separate exit alignments: Moving down LODPreparing for WingMoving toward DW.


The first alignment is in preparation for moving down LOD in a Chasse from PP:

 Man — Outside Change to PP — moving down LOD
Step # Feet Positions Alignment Amount of Turn Rise & Fall Footwork Sway CBM Timing
1 LF back Backing DC —— Com. to rise e/o 1
NFR
TH 1
2 RF back Backing DC Com. to turn Left Cont. to rise on 2 T Yes 2
3 LF to side in PP Facing DW
Moving along LOD
1/4 between 2-3
Body turns less
Up. Lower e/o 3 TH 3
RF forward and across
in PP and CBMP
Facing DW
Moving along LOD
H Yes
Lady — Outside Change to PP — moving down LOD
Step # Feet Positions Alignment Amount of Turn Rise & Fall Footwork Sway CBM Timing
1 RF forward Facing DC —— Com. to rise e/o 1 HT 1
2 LF forward Facing DC Com. to turn Left Cont. to rise on 2 T Yes 2
3 RF to side in PP Facing DC
Moving along LOD
—— Up. Lower e/o 3 TH 3
LF forward and across

The second alignment is specifically designed to prepare for the Wing:
