Jitterbug Stroll
This dance, also known as the Ryan Stroll after its creator, Ryan Francois, was originally choreographed to be done to Woodchoppers Ball, but more often than not is done to The Jitterbug Stroll by Steve Mitchell.  In this latter song, all the moves are called and the song is long enough for two choruses and a BIG finish!The description below is meant as an “aide memoire” for those who have attended one of our classes. It’s full of Fly Right terminology that we use when teaching – so apologies if you have come across this page and it makes little sense!
