Dance Notes

  1-23 During these 23 bars, 1s and 2s never let go of partner so helping a beginner through this dance is a breeze and they just can't get lost.

15-16 2s are already on the centre line as they lead up, avoiding what can be a scramble in dances where they have had to stand, waiting to step in behind 1s.
