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!
