The right shoulder pass was a deliberate choice because the two half reels are not the same - first couple's track during the second half reel is shorter than during the first half reel.

The right shoulder pass forces first couple to pass wide which means that they should finish on the side-lines rather than in from the side-lines - which can easily happen if they dance the reels at the same speed / in the same way.
