Swirl and Twirl. Love me some spot turns. Completed the first week of the challenge.

I went to a concert of Dervish music about 7 years ago and was taught this at the time. Now I need to see if I can remember/relearn this.

Final Day: I tried this on Friday in a stairwell landing at work and got very dizzy. Today I had the idea to try it again in a less confined space. I tried near Hudson Beach in Riverside Park. I managed ten loops using a park garbage can as my focus point.

Did this several times while swing dancing over the weekend.
