You mean they're saying 6,1,6,1 and that conveys the fact it's a rock step
*slaps self on head*? Don't they run out of numbers very fast given it's
an improvisational dance?
Ugh. I feel very fortunate to have a pair of teachers that simply uses
unary "ta" with the appropriate speed and possibly stress (as in "no, not
TAAA-ta-TAAA-ta-TAAA, ta-TA-ta-TA-TAAA!"), rather than octal numbers (plus one).
