They tap the floor two times with their right foot, then with their left foot, then they hop forwards, backwards, and fi- nally three hops forward to finish the sequence, which continues throughout the tune. The first person in the line leads the group around the floor.

"The foundation of our suc- cess stems from the com- plete experience we provide for our customers; this includes providing an up- scale d6cor, high-end cui- sine and top-shelf service at reasonable prices," Lombardo said.
