 REPEAT

From evanspb@ecol.net
When my group learned Dixie Lullaby from a visiting instructor, I watched and 
realized many were having a really difficult time with the last 8 counts of the dance. 
After thinking it over, when it was time to review the dance, I simply told them
to do this:

 CROSS, BACK, SIDE
1 Step right across left
2 Step left straight back
3 Step right next to left

 CROSS, BACK, SIDE
4 Step left over right
5 Step right straight back
6 Step left next to right
7 Cross right over left
8 Unwind half turn to left

It isn't as showy as the original footwork, but it is easier, gets you to the same 
place on each count and doesn't change the movement of the dance. 
If some can do the original footwork it fits right in.
