Whirled Peas is a lot of fun, especially during the beginner's session when the keyboard player (Bob Altman) does a lot of helpful improvising/noodling throughout. Random example -- when stars get taught, expect to hear "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.

The triple minor went well until about half-way through when two couples waiting out at the top tried to join in at the same time as the new ones decided to travel up the hall like they had been used to. I had to sort that one out on the floor.

Jacqui Ann had just taken a caller's workshop at a dance week, so this was her second time up on stage in Los Angeles. She did well.
