I acknowledge that this dance could have had 2 restarts, but it works well without them. This will please those of you have an aversion to tags and restarts!

We still do Terry Hogan’s Girl’s Night Out, it’s a golden oldie these days, but lots of dancers can’t manage it, and this dance is for them. I hope you enjoy it.
