This from Bob Golder: "The Fabulous Couple is a useful dance for callers who like to assemble a varied program of dances, without too many shared elements repeated from dance to dance, since it is constructed without any circles, chains, or [larks] allemandes. Most importantly, it's a very enjoyable dance."
