Optional hand movement: Forming the Letters YMCA:
To form the letter Y move arms over head to form a V shape.
To form letter M move both arms over head and touch fingertiops to top of head.
To form letter C curve left arm over head to form top of letter C,
to form bottom of letter C bring right arm down and fold arm out, durving hand up slightly.
To form letter A bring arms straight over head and bring palms together.
These hand movements are optional, but they add a touch to the dance.
The dance works well even if the hand movements are left out.
Bodyflow: moving from Sandstep (Part B) to Timestep (Part C) - goes against the expectations of dancers.
