Comment

This video gives a general impression of "La Russe", but differs in several respects:

  1. On [1-16] turning the corners and partner is done with a birling turn instead of BH turn.

  2. For [17-32] either 1c+3c or 2c+4c dance; this should be one couple only. The Poussette [25-32]is missing, replaced by biring turns for 8 bars placed in [17-24].

  3. Arches have been added for [33-48]

  4. The big wheel [57-64] has been replaced by a promenade cclw once round.
