This is not original choreography. It is actually the old classic line dance, "Waltz Across Texas" by Lois & John Nielson, except a hold has been added after each 3rd count to make it a rhumba (or, according to Evelyn, a mambo.) The idea for this dance came to Peter and Evelyn (and probably a couple hundred other dancers) totally independently, several years apart.
