In the San Francisco Bay Area this dance was taught by Hedy McAdams circa 1996 with the title Black Velvet, still known as Black Velvet in The S F Bay Area in 2005. The music played by our DJ's: Black Velvet, Robin Lee. I was on the dance floor in the midwest in the mid 90's when this dance was taught and called Black Velvet. DV 051705

*/Note from Choreographer:/*
The song is actually called Ski Bumpus, Banjo Fantasy since they
used the song in a music video showing snow skiers doing fancy
moves to the song. They had never thought of dancing to it.
I originally wrote it in 1989 and taught it at events until 1991 when
I was the choreographer for Club Dance at the Whitehorse Cafe. I
introduced it on that show. Even though it is an old dance and an old
song, I get requests all the time for the teaching video of it and for
write-ups of it. My teaching video also contains the Southern Style
Schottische or Sweetheart Schottische as some call it, as well as an
original patterned partner dance called Cowboy Roundup. Happy dancin'
