I'm wondering if anyone can answer this question. One of our dancers, who is
a musician, has always been bothered by the fact that we count travelling
steps and setting steps in "real" time, i.e. 1 and 2 and 3 and... (I know,
123, 223, 323,...), but we count circles 12345678, even though those steps
only take four bars. Can anyone enlightened her (and me!)?
Cheers,
Colleen
