So-so

Taught (and danced) this in the Frankfurt group. It is a reasonable choreography but gets tedious 4 times through – you always meet the same people in the same places, the only thing that changes is who gets to be top couple. The four-bar turns in the second part are a bit of a downer and might profitably be replaced with set (common schottische) and a turn in two bars.

I could see myself using this in a display choreography but not more than one time through.
