Capricious, flirtatious, delicious.
The dance uses a strong diagonal floor pattern, with upright, light skips and flashing, circling and pressing arms ending in a twirl that rounds back to the upstage corner in a variety of flirtatious gestures, lifts and reaches. Other moments stomp and twist, dig and pull back, spin and suspend, hiding and revealing. The strong skips on the diagonal return, more vigorously and then more gently, to finish in a final flurry of stomps, twirls, runs and a lunging reach.
