Position: 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 right hand in his right hand slightly to the right of her right shoulder
Hands are never released, arms are slightly lifted over the heads for the turns. This is considered simple enough that no additional arm instructions will be provided. This dance has been modified by many dancers and teachers, until we cannot determine the original steps.

Option 4
Styling changes that crept into our dancing over the past six years. These are changes to the basic dance and do not refer to the options listed above.-Ron and Sandra Still
Substitute the following counts:
4Right foot scuff forward into low kick and then sweep to the right
5Right foot step diagonally forward and to the right (you guessed it right. After the sweep to the right in count 4, you just step down on count 5.)
6Left foot scuff forward into low kick and sweep to the left
7Left foot step diagonally forward and to the left (you guessed it again. After the sweep in count 6, you just step down on count 7.)
8Right foot scuff forward into low kick and sweep to the right
 
9Right foot step diagonally forward and to the right (yep. After the sweep to the right in count 8, you just step down on count 9.)-step down with the toe first and use the spring built into this type of movement to push your weight back for count 10. As your weight goes forward onto the right toe, your left heel lifts slightly
10Left toe steps about 12-18" straight behind the right foot, weight rocks back on the left toe (the left heel can settle down to the floor and the right foot can lift slightly off the floor), and the left toe immediately starts shifting the weight forward for count 12's pivot.
11Right foot is planted on the floor and weight shifts forward over the right foot
12Left knee lifts until thigh is parallel to the floor, with the foot and shin remaining partially tucked back under the thigh not hanging straight down from the knee and right toe pivots ¼ turn to the right (if the gentleman is taller than the lady, he is advised to keep his knee slightly to the left of the lady as he turns in this move.)
 
19Right foot step to close to left foot
20Left foot step in place
 
22Right foot step in place
23Right toe pivot ½ turn to the left, returning to original promenade position facing line of dance
