My last task of the evening is to choreograph an international waltz routine for a single trip around the dance floor. I only have thirteen moves (and four of those are simple spins broken up into “first half” and “second half”), but the potential combinations are daunting.

This routine shouldn’t be the same as the routine we’ve learned in class. At the same time, though, it’s always nice if you can get the moves to flow into each other, rather than being a herky-jerky mess because you didn’t consider the rotation of each step.

And then there’s the little problem that I’m supposed to have this routine memorized by tomorrow evening. (Brent’s Dark Secret: he sucks at following routines, even when each step is called out in advance.)
