Option: This dance may also be danced contra style. Here are a few points to keep in mind when dancing it contra:

Start with lines facing each other.
1-8Start directly opposite your ‘partner’, less than 2 feet apart. The rumba box is danced around your partner and by count 8, you are slightly to the left of where you started count 1.
17-24On counts 17-20 you will cross lines and by count 24, lines are facing and on opposite sides, from where the dance started. At this point, dancers will be slightly to the right of their partners.
57-64Adjust your steps so that you finish the left grapevine, directly opposite your partner.
