The Pasadena

    Created by Allen Dodsworth's brother George. The Pasadena was a new combination danced to any two-step music and done in waltz position.

     Dodsworth states: The explanation is for the gentleman, but will answer for the lady, if, where leaders right is mentioned, she uses her left foot, and, where leaders left is mentioned, she uses her right foot. Each repeats this strain, commencing with opposite foot. (...see bottom of page)
