    Nice nice lovely super little move which can calm down hectic dances and generally exude sophistication and purposefulness in an otherwise slightly grey dance. Hmmmm I'm really full of it today!
    On a more serious note this has to be one of my all time favorites and almost every time I dance this with a new partner it gets good comments as its rare!!
