- This dance starts with old neighbors, moves to current neighbors, previews next neighbors, and ends with current neighbors.
- Jig about 110 bpm would be fine slow and smooth tempo.
- This dance is for Laurel Wilson.
- Danced 3/14/2010 and this dance is a bit too busy to actually dance, so I’ll write another for Laurel.
