NOTE: This dance was choreographed in July 1997 expressly for a nationally promoted line dance choreography contest with Max Perry and Jo Thompson as the judges. The entries into the contest reportedly were staggering, and it took them until late January of 1998 to dig their way through the hundreds of video tapes and declare a winner. This dance didn't win, but according to the announcement, it was among the Top 10.
