13-16 Preliminary notes. A "Tops Turn"
is like 2 Half Monterey
Turns, but we add toe sweeps, giving the
move a unique effect: visually you
will resemble a spinning top!
Allow the sweeping toe to turn your body.
It is important to bend the
supporting leg at counts 13 and 15.
13 Bend R knee and Sweep L toe from left
side in a half circle forward and
right turning 1/2 right (12:00)

gradually from 13 ("down") to 14

side in a half circle (from beside
L) out to right side and then back turning
1/2 right. R toe may start this
sweep slightly forward. ( 6:00)

End of pattern. Begin again...
In any one-wall dance, the pattern should
return us to the same spot at
which we started.
The choreography here has been designed
to do that without effort.
Thanks to Fay Son-Hing for the idea for
the title of this dance.
