Fun for advanced dancers

Anselm Lingnau · Feb. 19, 2017, 10:49 p.m.

This dance is good to teach to people who believe they've seen everything. One fun aspect is that every other three-bar phrase starts on the left foot, which works out reasonably well. Also, the turn-corners-and-partner bit is more relaxed than usual because there are three bars per hand rather than two.
