I agree with Lara about the aptness of Monique Henderson's technique
lesson - timing and phrasing are matters of great importance to her (and
to all of us!). However, I can't remember her specific instructions for
this dance any better than Lara.

I can appreciate the approach suggested by Malcolm - a nice, steady pace
throughout. However, what about "strong in, easy out", i.e., aim for
about 1 1/2 turns in the first four bars, then ease the pace in the next
four. Since you need to bring the 2s in from a standing start, a little
less pace at the end of the first phrase might be a good thing.

One of those nice places where you get to experiment, and use your
judgment.

Cheers,
