I can get the dance to end where I want it to about 50% of the time. I don't know what the difference is between it not ending right and it ending right. :-) I'm treating the music as 4/4 time. Sigh, all I can do is keep working on it until 7 tonight. :-)

Thanks so much,
Sara Sophia

i.e. single = 2, single = 2, double = 4 so (2,2,4)

there may also be a short intro in the music, I don't specifically

remember.

Well, I finally sat down and counted and guess what. The first run through on the mp3 is about 2 measures/bars/4 counts shorter than the rest. No wonder I can't get the steps to come out right the first time. :-)

Thanks for all the help everyone. I think I've got it now. :-)
