Apologies - I have submitted the dance incorrectly as 2-walls but it’s definitely a 4-wall dance ... I have asked George to correct it.

I see something new to me here and when I see something new I like to find out what it means so I can tell my students. I've not seen the term "SHADOWS" Jazz Box before. Is "SHADOWS" a dance term or derived from something other than dance? I googled it and can find nothing. I started to think it might be a step the Shadows Band did since they were of that era and may have done it but can't find any videos of them doing a jazz box. Nice dance BTW.

@glsmall ... yes, I've used the term to describe a dance move from The Shadows music group ... I recall seeing them step forward THEN doing the cross, whereas in linedance we always cross first. I used a similar step a number of years ago in my dance "Sin City Swing" and I just felt it fitted the style of music for this dance (albeit using 8 counts rather than the 4 in Sin City Swing). I am glad that you liked the dance. Gary
