Largo

The Largo was choreographed by Tom Schiffer and named after the place where he created it. I has the nickname it "The Fountain" because of the hand gestures.

The entire dance is done facing inward, not holding hands.

Each numbered step takes four beats of music.

  1. {hands cross in front of the body and continue circling out to each side: this takes all 4 counts} Brush R foot in front of left foot, sidestep R, step with L foot behind right foot, sidestep R
  2. {hands cross in front of the body and continue circling out to each side: this takes all 4 counts} Brush L foot in front of right foot, sidestep L, step with R foot behind left foot, sidestep L
  3. Mayim L (starting with R foot crossing in front of left foot)
  4. Tcherkessia

A variation I have seen for this dance is that some people bow during the second half of the Mayim (dancers are facing RLOD at the time).
