15-16 2s step up (the deviser's recommendation).
29-32 A slow, initially long-arm, turn into allemande hold.
The dance came to the deviser's mind whilst watching people arriving and visiting this attraction:
bars 1-8 depict people arriving from many areas;
bars 9-16 depict the high speed internal lift;
bars 17-32 depict the viewing platform and venturing onto the glass foor;
bars 33-40 depict descending in the external scenic lift.
The Spinnaker Tower represents sails billowing in the wind, a design accomplished using two large, white, sweeping steel arcs, which give the tower its spinnaker sail design.
