Extra info
Only the animation video shows ...

Only the animation video shows the reel correctly - the dancer videos do not! The "tandem" dancers should stay PARALLEL to the side lines/center axis of the set. That is:- When they cut the center of the reel they should be side by side as they cross the side line, not one following the other.
