Side steps - up, turn out then down

A welcome break for the dancers whilst Ruth Bibby does Sam Sherry's Waltz

A few spots of rain for "Jockey to the Fair", Ducklington
Top couple done, so walk down to the bottom

Brolly too small,  so a seamless change to a bigger one

"Knuckles Akimbo", Moulton
A clash, half way through "Rounds" - Note arm positions are perfectly "Akimbo"
