    Footwork. Nice and jivey if your partner knows what you are going to do. Hopeless if she doesn't! This is one of those moves you talk about first.
    Man: "OK, I'm going to have a go at the .. (points at feet)" Lady: "Pardon? its too loud in here". Man: "Footwork - old fashioned move!!" Lady: "Yes it's very loud in here!"
