Whirl-Y-Reel
Choreographed by Bill Bader

Description: Phrased, intermediate line dance
Music: Whirl-Y-Reel I (Beard & Sandals Mix) by Afro-Celt Sound System
Fever by Jeff Moore
Dance On by Rick Tippe
Better Way by Little Texas
Poor Me by Joe Diffie

Note: The music is available on the movie soundtrack "Jungle 2 Jungle" or on "The Greatest Irish Album Ever Made" (Telstar Records, London 44(0)20 8878 7888)
Sequence: When dancing to "Whirl-Y-Reel I", start at 0:39. The sequence is dictated by the musical themes. For example, Section A is triggered by the Irish flute theme
  1st Wall (12:00): A, B-3 - First half plus "Heel and Toe"
  2nd Wall (9:00): A, B - Entire dance
  3rd Wall (6:00): A, B - Entire dance
  4th Wall (3:00): B only - Last half
  5th Wall (12:00): A, A-1 with special ending (see below) - First half + restart
Note: When dancing to "Fever", do original routine below for walls 1-4, then, because of this longer song, do the total dance on walls 5 and 6. When dancing to "Dance On", there is no sequence needed. Just dance AB, AB, AB, etc
