Quality (of the dancing)
Demonstration quality (What does this mean?)

Once through as part of a longer demonstration. The whole video starts with a clock-like sequence to bring dancers into starting places. This clip starts with the dance itself. The last four bars (all turn 1 1/2) is here modified to lead into the next dance.
