Video Notes
The Spurtle danced successively with 2nd, 3rd and 4th couples in bars 9-20 of The Blue Mess Jacket. Note that, at bar 9, the preceding figure leaves 1s back-to-back between 2s rather than side-by-side on the centre line; note also that the dancers are preparing for an inauthentic both hands turn at the end of the clip.
