Whoops, am I mis-reading you, cece? I was taught that the distance from
the first man to the first woman was the same as the distance from the
first man to the third man.

Nevertheless, if you regard a grand circle as a rectangle instead of as a
circle (while being danced -- yes, I know it begins and ends as a square),
then, there is a problem of speeding upand slowing down. If it's a
circle, there is not.
