Notes: The "A" part of this dance is a little bit tricky, especially at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's fun and worth the trouble.

This dance is dedicated to Ingrid.

Anybody and everybody is completely welcome to teach, call, dance, and/or reproduce this dance in any way, as long as I get credited for writing it.
