A1
slice left and straight back and gents pull neighbor
neighbors swing
A2
circle left 3 places
partners allemande right 1½
B1
hey, gentlespoons lead left shoulder
B2
partners meltdown swing

Becket-ized version of Tom Hinds' The Carousel, but without the chunky feeling of long lines forward and back (technically the slice is almost lines forward/back, but dancers can ooze it a bit more, especially since it's a slice and take).

Queue-less, not clueless, because this time The Carousel has no lines. Unlike my program, which at the time had 5 LLFB and one just had to go.

Not My Second Rodeo

by: Isaac Banner

introduces moves: pass through

formation: improper

A1
neighbors balance & swing
A2
half hey, gentlespoons lead
gentlespoons allemande left 1½
B1
partners meltdown swing
B2
circle left 3 places
pass through
next neighbors do si do once

Kind of but not really The Second Time Around. Hey-to-allemande offers a refreshing broken-hey-ish redux of allemande-to-hey and creates an illusion of less inactivity in the ladle's role.

One Fish, Two Fish, Right and Left Through Fish

by: Isaac Banner

introduces moves: ocean wave, balance, right left through

formation: Becket, 2x progression

A1
circle left 3 places and face across
balance the ring and pass through across
to ocean wave with gents catching left in the center
A2
balance short waves forward/back
pass through
neighbors swing for 10
B1
right left through
ladles allemande right ¾ for 4
ladles allemande left ¾ for 4 with the next
B2
partners balance & swing

The name started as a joke until Ron Blechner egged me on to write an actual dance.

The pivotal place where it can all fall to pieces is the pass the ocean - if dancers aren't paying attention they'll absentmindedly pass through up/down and everything will collapse in on itself.

Winter Fog

by: Isaac Banner

introduces moves: slide along set, mad robin

formation: Becket

A1
slide left along set to new neighbors
ladles chain
half hey, ladles lead
A2
half hey, ladles lead
neighbors swing
B1
long lines forward & back
mad robin, gentlespoons in front for 8
B2
circle left 3 places
partners swing

If a full vanilla hey split across a phrase makes you nauseous, feel free to replace the first half at the end of the A1 with a right + left through.

"The motion in B1 does seem magical – while the ladies Petronella over and back across the set, the gents do consecutive Petronellas along the side, in effect progressing behind his partner’s back."
- Rich Goss
