“ This is a great smooth move to use with a girl who has a light relaxed follow. The neck wrap means that this can be too scary to use on a beginner to intermediate lady, as she will generally freak out and try to take her own arm above her head at the end of the 2nd bar.
The lead out of the neck wrap feels great if lead well, and the secret to it is to always be leading forwards, and remember the lady takes 2 steps forward before you turn her out.”
