This dance was written with the tune Big John McNeil’s in mind. It didn’t have a name until a Winter (Fall, actually; Thanksgiving weekend 1993) camping trip in Northern Idaho when the temperature was -15 F. The name doesn’t have anything to do with the dance; it was just fun to say once the lips thawed out. In the B2, the women join the star behind their partners.
