It is a poor idea to change a published dance. That leads to confusion in classes and at dance events when some have heard of the change and others not. If a dance needs a change, republish with a new name.

The transition 16-17 is awkward. 1c faces out the ends, and then has to give Rsh to 1cnr. Eric
