        This is a non-progressive, two-hand, 16-bar pattern danced to old-time waltz music.
        Couples take positions around the perimeter of the dance floor with gents having their
                       backs toward the center; the
line of dance is anticlockwise.
        The pattern is also danced free; that is, dance in the available space as other dancers dance
                       either the same or another waltz pattern.
        Except during the lady-turn of line ten below, dance in waltz hold.
        Bar counts for dance patterns are shown in bold. 
        Documentation is based upon the pattern having been danced at North Olmsted,
                       Ohio USA.
  Other versions are danced.
