Comments: Do you know what I mean by "virtual wave of 4"? You flatten the circle and women end in the middle of a wave, but no hands touch and you don't stop there. Women face neighbor out of the set, men face in and it's nice to tug your neighbor with the hand left over from the circle (women's right, men's left) into the half hey. It's so hard to describe this move and I don't like to over-teach it, but it's the thing that makes the dance special. Let me know if it's not clear.
