Is this really the figure described in Laird's book?

Laird states that there is no Bounce Action during his Carioca Runs, and mentions a flick at the end of the SLOW, while this couple does something that looks almost like a bounced Volta, with a leg pointing straight on the start of the SLOW..
Also, the steps seem quite different.. maybe there are different figures known as Carioca Runs..

Yes, this is not Carioca Runs which Walter Laird figured in his book.
