It is Also Good

Please let me know more about this dance! I do not know its choreographer. I have nicknamed it "It is Also Good" because it appears to be a simplified version of It is Good. But I am not sure this guess is accurate history.

The entire dance is done facing RLOD and not holding hands.

Each numbered step takes four beats of music.

  1. Four running, clapping stpes: R-L-R-L
  2. Tcherkessia
  3. Four running, clapping stpes: R-L-R-L
  4. Tcherkessia
  5. R Yemenite, hop on R foot and clap
  6. L yemenite, hop on L foot and clap
  7. {hands at almost shoulder height, palms up and elbows down like shrugging} Step R, hop on R foot, step L, hop on L foot
  8. {hands at almost shoulder height, palms away from body and elbows down} four "kick-sway" steps: hop onto R foot while lifting left foot sideways and up, hop onto L foot while lifting right foot sideways and up, hop onto R foot while lifting left foot sideways and up, hop onto L foot while lifting right foot sideways and up
