I would just like to suggest to all those nay-sayers out there, don't
discount the suggestion until you have tried it. Just because with
sufficient anticipation the circle can be done from the side doesn't mean
that stepping in won't improve the transition.
For those that might argue that this is an unnecessary movement I turn
the argument back on you bacause if some might consider the whole idea of
dance as unnecessary movement. How often have we danced 80 some bars
only to find your back where you started. We certainly didn't do it
solely for effficiency of movement.
Anyway, try it before you stomp all over it.
