Music: 
Here In The Real World by Alan Jackson
Position:Couples in promenade position, both facing line of dance; lady standing on the gentleman's right side; each will have heels together; his left hand will hold her left hand either in front of his left shoulder, in front of and slightly higher than his waist, or in front of the lady's left shoulder; his right arm will reach behind the lady and hold her hand in his right hand slightly to the right of her right shoulder
 When couples completely form a circle around the dance floor, it is important to agree on the steps in order that the pattern be similar and safe for all dancers. Standard steps for gentleman and lady are identical-hand holds are different. Time or slipped memory has shifted this dance's starting point and changed a few steps in many clubs. Note that the starting point and several steps are different enough to change the style of the dance.
