(Becket Version below). What I've found is that it takes a couple of cycles
for some dancers to settle into the transition. It flows well but a
minority of dancers stop/break the flow early on to simply face across when
they come out of the swing - it takes them a beat or two to remember and
get moving CW again. Aware dancers keep their momentum going from the swing
and take or keep inside hands out of it to boost each other into the MR.
