    Excellent! Can't think what a rollercoaster or roundabout look like (I might have done them without knowing it, not sure!), but it sounds like fun to me!

    Just what is this move about.......
    I've heard you mention this before, could you describe it to me? I agree though it is a pants name!

    I like the "First move twirly whirly seducer", very descriptive and also an excellent move - although it's a possiblilty it's only called that by Michaela Walker, not sure.

    Can't think what a rollercoaster look like
    Rollercoaster comb (filed under "not yet").
    L-R hold start (finishes R-R).
    1-3. As left-handed comb.
    4. Boy places right hand on girl's right wrist.
    5. Boy uses this R-R hold to lead the girl to make a turn clockwise.
    6. Step back.
    7. Return...
    8. ... the girl.

    On the Alton Towers theme, isn't the Wurlitzer a type of fairground ride?

    A fairground organ (don't laugh there at the back!).

    Oooh, I just thought - You'd enter Alton Towers through a Turnstyle, wouldn't you? (Variation on a Sway where you flick the lady's hand behind you back & rotate a lot).

    A Rollercoaster starts in a cross hand hold & basically involves both dancers turning one after each other. You can spice it up and change places at the same time. There's a sort of break in the middle, and it ends in a catapult finish.

    I think the ballroom folk call the "flung" bit -- "rolling off the arm".

    For starters, there is no rock step. The move starts with the ladies walking forwards for 2 steps (guys slightly backwards with smaller steps) closing the gap between you and your partner introducing the compression in your frame. This continues for the three-and of the first tripple step, and on the four of the first tripple step, the lady steps backwards, followed by the second tripple step on the spot (referred to as the anker step).
    Quite so, but to aid understanding of this move - the second triple step in place is referred to in the US as an anchor step........

    Yeah 'Flingy Flung' ,er pointless..

    Lasso is a good one.., the name suits..

    Seducer is well over-used word for moves...
    I also dislike the er, 'tic-tac' -

    G

    Maybe it was your spelling of anker(sic) that threw him, !??
