Reykjavikurvals

Country: Island
Type: couple dance
Formation: any number of couples, open circle, waltz hold, M back into centre of circle.
Steps: waltz
Music: any waltz with a :1-8::9-16: or :1-16: structure

  Dance progression
1-4 Beginning with ML/WR foot, couples dance towards centre of circle with 1 waltz step (M backwards, W forwards), then back out to circle perimetre with one waltz step (W backwards, M forwards). Followed by two waltz steps in LOD.
5-8 W dances, with 4 waltz steps CW under joined ML/WR arms, two full turns (one-half turn per waltz step). Meanwhile M dances waltz steps forward in LOD.
9-14 Six turning waltz steps in LOD, with waltz hold.
15-16 On the last 2 waltz steps W dances CW under joined ML/WR arms, as before.
  Repeat as desired.

Note: this was one of the combined dances for Nordlek 2000.

Note 2: this can easily be turned into a mixer, by, on 15-16 W moving forward in LOD to next M.
