Choreographers Note: This song sounds faster than it is, which almost stopped me from doing a dance to it, and I had it "earmarked" for quite some time before I actually started to work on it.
The steps 17, 18 and 21, 22 will almost feel like "step, hold" after the syncopated steps before them - try not to rush them.  This is another dance I tried really hard to keep easy, because there are so many harder dances out there and very few easy ones to choose from.  I think I have succeeded, my "beginner" class certainly didn't have much trouble with it, especially with the coaster substitution on "15 & 16" - although most found it feels better with the turn.  The music rhythm is polka or shuffle so anything similar should work as a substitute if necessary.  The CD "Stories I Could Tell" is on Decca Label.
