I am getting married on 6/26 (made reference to it in a few posts) and after much effort we (fiancee is a pro, Fred Astaire trained and certified instructor) we have finally put together the following choreography. Now I hope I can remember it! We are starting with a FT, fading to a Tango and ending with a Waltz.

Runaround

It fits to the measure to the music so if I forget a figure I am in big trouble. I guess I will just revert to improvisation for the reminder of the specific dance and try to get back to the starting floor position for whatever dance is next.

If any of you dance this in your head and spot a problem let me know and I will take a look at it. The combo moves nicely around the floor.

You should post a clip to YouTube... We'd all love to see it!
