- This dance was bought during a camp auction by Ivan Bottlik for his daughter Allegra at the Bay Area Country Dance Society’s Family Dance Camp week in July 2007.
- Allegra (also a dance caller) requested a gypsy meltdown, so here it is.
- The dance title is an obvious play on words, combining Allegra’s name with the musical instruction allegro non troppo, which means “fast, but not too fast”.
- In the A2 dosido, if the women time things just right, they should be able to flow nicely from the dosido right into the subsequent hey.
