I think you've picked a great batch of figures for a performance
Elaine, do you modify the dance to turn it from a social dance into a
performance dance? For example, use two chords with the dancers bowing to
the audience on the second chord (if the performance hall is somewhat
formal). With the advance and retire, are any of the dancers going towards
the audience? Do you position the square so that no couple have their
backs to the audience? And can your dancers maintain that diamond
position relative to the stage?
