13 Mid movimento *8
Repeat the whole dance. If you have enough room
to do this you can use the first 2 saltarello B's to end up all 3 facing
in the same direction. If you don't have enough room, use them to get somewhere
you do have room.
*1 One Left Saltarello B = first step with the Left foot, then Right, then Left. Jump onto the Right foot then step with the left. In Polit. we have varied the direction of the jump - if you have limited space, back is better than forward.
*2 One Left Piva = with heels raised, Step L,
Step R, StepL, come down on the flat of the
*3 One Passo = 1 step (not step and close like a single)
*4 A Left double (doppi) in Bassa Danza:
Beat 1 2 3 4 5 6
Step L starting to lift the R R L bringing the R foot level with the L in readiness for the next double, single, whatever.
*5 A Left & Right Passo in Bassa Danza:
Beat 1 2 3 4 5 6
Step L R
*6 riprese - in this case, a Left riprese would normally be a step to the side while rising on the right foot followed by bringing the right foot up to the left while descending.

*7 continenza - a Left continenza = a step to the L, then bring up the right foot while rising, decend when the feet are together.
*8 movimento - a natural gesture of attraction
