Thanks Guillaume :-)

I'm assuming for Alta Somaglia you just took the "and jumps" and make them 
into continous kicks which somehow weaved properly into the 2nd cinque pas.

 >Or, to expand a little, the common cinq pas is five steps in six beats:

 >For an 11-step, you ignore the first cadence and continue through to the 
second

17-steps,
