She's not the only one. Veronique Daniels is into non-choreographed
partnered steps in sauterello & even bazzadanza time. I tried to
sell this at a Crosston Ball session... went over like a lead balloon.
This group is sooooo programmed toward choreography. Sad, really.
People get it in their minds that choreo is the One True Way. T'isnt!
