Video Links

Here are videos that most accurately show how some of these dances are meant to be done.



V (Vee)
We gave an incorrect middle name of Brad and Barbara’s daughter Violeta. Her full name should be Violeta Virginia Russell Foster.

Greensprings is missing a figure. It should be:
25-28 Partners R-shoulder back to back
29-30 All set, taking hands on the sidelines
31-32 Partners R-hand turn once round
