In your ripresa, is your weight ending on the right foot? If so, it makes
it difficult to take the next step on the right. If beat 5 has the right
foot only placed behind without transferring weight, or if there is a
subsequent weight change on beat 6, this could solve matters, but needs
to be specified.
