Debbie was inspired to write this tune after watching Tom Senior and Barbara Cool dance.

Note: As M3 comes out of the L-h star at the top, he must be prepared to switch direction in order to move smoothly into the hey for three with his partner and the active Twos. One way for him to accomplish this is to cast over his right shoulder into the hey.
