Dance Notes

  1-4   3s are active and so the drop to fourth place of the full set by the former 1s has been explicitly choreographed by the deviser. In the third, fifth and seventh repeats:

  1-2   3s set in fourth place of the full set WHILE the former 1s, in third place, stand;

  3-4   3s cross up to third place on opposite sides WHILE the former 1s step down.

19-20 2s step up.
