Dance starts with vocals.

Dance History: Choreographed for a dancing competition that took place in Manchester around October 1968.
The dance performed at the ‘Pop Inn’ by the choreographers was placed second in the final, but didn’t not have a title - now it has be it '30 Something' years later (2000).
Danced locally in Disco/clubs for maybe 3-4 years (it even made its way to Australia – as was seen in the early 1990’s) it never achieved anywhere near the same exposure of what dances do today with global communication.
For the full history see: http://www.dorisvolz.com/williamsevone.htm

This dance deserves more than 1 or 2 stars---the cutest dances have been 16 counts. It allows non-practiced dancers to participate.

Many thanks for that observation 'tessi'.
Many 'appear' to forget that this dance is quite possibly older than what they are... almost 48 years old.

The dance is over 50 years old.. older than most of the 'top Choreographers' are today.

Many of those who have given this dance low 'Stars' must think that multi phrased, triple full turns in one count, back flips and somersault's 96 plus count dances have been around like 'forever'.
They cannot comprehend the meaning of the phrase 'Mighty Oaks from little Acorns grow'. They just haven't got the intelligence it seems.

It's a fun, easy dance. The big advantage to these shorter beginning dances is that you can use a lot of different songs to suit your taste. However, I'll note that the instructions as given here do not exactly match the demos of the dance here in a number of small ways. Either version works fine.

Metaltigger October 22, 2020
Georgio. It is quite difficult with some languages that do not have the exact same meaning for some 'English' words. So a little latitude must always ensue.
And as always, ..any imperfections are really perfection in disguise. You are quite right regarding the variety of music that can be used, though sometime a little caution should be used.
