Disclaimer: Mistakes are quite likely in the notes and no guarantees are made as to accuracy. Music may differ, particularly in speed, introduction and duration, between performers. The division into parts, bars & counts is not standard. These notes of the dance are freely distributable (under GPL or CC-by-sa) in so much as the note's author's contribution but the choreography was someone else and so their copyright might apply to the dance itself. Better than using notes, go to a dance class where it is taught by Mary Mindham.
