Hand movements - After the first four walls:
1-2 Men: Extend left arms fully out to left, right arms over head, pointing to left, fingers closed
Ladies: Extend both arms fully out to left, at chest height, fingers closed.
9-10 Reverse of 1-2
17-20 With elbows close to body, point forearms and hands in direction of applejacks (L, R, L, R) Rotate neck (not body) to face same direction.
Music - The recommended music is track 2 from the CD single of "Lord of
the Dance". Alternatively use track 1 from the full CD, but start the dance half way through when the full orchestra starts up. Alternatively use the "bonus " track 16, but this has the taps on it.
