> i.e 1st couple petronella past each other on bars > 15&16 which gives flight into the CPCP and a lovely flirt on the way > past each other. Scandalous I know, but in my defense, the latest (at
Why is it scandelous.......that's how I have always done it! (not that that
makes it right :-) )
The first time I did this dance was in California, and I danced it with Bob
Blackie. (fond memories). Neither of us had ever done the dance before, so
listened to the talk through. " Blah blah blah, Set to corners and partner
also known as Hello goodbye setting, on the last two bars advance towards your
first corner, ready for turn corner,........"
Chord..... and away we went (we were first couple so had not seen anyone else
do the dance) we both naturally continued the movement of the hello goodbye
setting as we passed each other in the middle, it was great....
As Bruce said, it lets you fly into the turns.
Of course, the set all gasped, and as we watched the rest of the set realized
we had done it differently. OH WELL! that's how I do it..... that's how I
teach it (tho' show the simple advancing as well).
SO however you get to your corners .....ENJOY IT! But if you've never tried
the turn as you advance....try it! you'll like it! ;-)
