The Music

The Figure

4 bars: Four bars of rotary waltz.

2 bars: Two bars of movie waltzing, i.e., balance along LOD, and against LOD. (The balance can be a side-close-close, or a side-rock-step.)

2 bars: The Follow waltzes solo along LOD, under the Lead's raised arm (an outside turn). The Lead stays in place, turning back against LOD to invite the next Follow into the waltz.
