A good (or maybe that should be bad) example of the virtues of 'keep on going'. Filmed from a slightly different angle, I got in part of the right hand set. They made mistakes, got it wrong, but went to where they were supposed to be and let the music catch up with them. Carry on regardless.

Last night's Dance Leader, stopped the music, sorted it all out and then re-started. Unfortunately the right hand set were no longer in the swing of things and made bigger mistakes and the set collapsed. Would they have learned more if they had just carried on and not stopped? - we will never know.

Without further ado, here are two videos - as per usual, click on the picture to watch:

The start.
