Becky,

Too bad that your kitchen didn't provide you with another person with whom to
try this.

I've just enlisted Jerry to be the "woman," and it works fine (in our
hallway!). I think that when you have another person in tow it will for you as well.
Right in right hand throughout, and the man (the instructions say dancing
"below" partner) makes a wide "U" around the woman as she goes under the joined
arms and they both turn to face up. Anyway it seems to work smoothly with
two. This hallway escapade is my first attempt at what you described. I haven't
yet attempted teaching the dance. Our class does not resume till September
9th.

And now I see that it is almost three o'clock Pacific, that's almost six
Eastern, so don't even know whether you'll even have chance to see this ere you're
off to class!
