Position: Start in closed couple position. May be used as a dance on it's own, as an amalgamation in your waltz routine or as individual move to add to your waltz.
You CAN do this as a progressing dance in the fast lane once you've got the patterns down and can concentrate on moving forward. Janet and I often find we're road blocked by partner/flow waltzers if they drift outward. At that point we'll revert to a basic waltz pattern for the next 10 series then once around the logjam we resume on the next musical phrase.
Begin dancing after 24-count intro
WALTZ LOD
1-6Couple waltzes forward line-of-dance (shoulders turn to left on 6 to lead next move)

½ TURN LEFT
7-9Couple turns ½ turn left set lady to your left side (step straight forward with left foot - pelvis does not turn). Step through on 1 pivot left and step down LOD on 2 (lady is now facing LOD, man RLOD)
10-12Couple waltzes slightly RLOD

WALTZ RLOD
13-18Couple waltzes reverse line-of-dance

MAN'S ½ TURN LEFT
19-21Man turns left under left arm (now facing LOD in "left open promenade") remove right hand from lady's shoulder, turn ½ left under your left/lady's right hands
22-24Couple waltzes slightly forward LOD
We often find the floor too crowded to remain in open promenade so we allow our frame to collapse. Elbows meet and I call this left "collapsed" promenade. This actually works to your advantage, as a simple turn of the lady's left hand leads her into the pin-wheel turn

COUPLE PIN-WHEELS LEFT
25-30Couple waltzes in pin-wheel fashion (using joined hands as an axis) turning ½ left to face RLOD. Lady dances slightly backwards to facilitate the pin-wheel

LADY'S ½ RIGHT & MAN'S ½ TURN LEFT
31-33Couple turns ¼ to face each other (man recovers lady's left hand in his right "2-hand open")
34-36(release lady's right hand from man's left) couple turns ¼ to face forward LOD. (now facing LOD in "right open promenade")

WALTZ LOD WITH LOCK STEPS
37-39Step diagonally forward (left for men, right for ladies), lock step, step forward (partners move apart)
40-42Step diagonally forward, lock step, step forward (partners move towards each other)
43-48Repeat steps 37-42

LADY'S ½ LEFT & MAN'S ½ TURN RIGHT
49-51Couple turns ¼ to face each other (man recovers lady's right hand in his left)
52-54(release lady's left hand from man's right) couple turns ¼ to face forward RLOD (left open promenade)

WHIP TO CLOSED POSITION, MAN FACING LOD
55-57Men:
 1 - turn left to face diagonally forward LOD take a healthy step on the left
 2 - face LOD and step slightly to the right side on right foot
 3 - turn slightly diagonally left, moving left arm towards RLOD (acts as a lead for the lady's turn) and step left crossed behind right
 Ladies:
 1-2-3 - waltz in a ½ right arc around the man
 
58-60Turn the lady into a ½ left turn under man's left arm returning to closed couple

REPEAT
