hook: Easier shadow hey to partners swing
Identify next neighbors on left diagonal and identify shadow on other side of partner
partners promenade looping CCW to next neighbors ⁋
ladles allemande right 1½
neighbors balance & swing
circle left 3 places
pass through to shadows
shadows start a half hey - lefts on ends, rights in center - and look for partners (like a half gyre to begin)
partners meltdown swing
Make sure to emphasize that the partner swing ends across from the neighbors you swung. When walking the hey, make sure the dancers are solidly aware of whom they're dancing the hey with and where they need to end up.
An easier setting for the half hey with shadow to a partner swing sequence that I used in The Birds are the Words. Written around the same time, but finally named on the day after I moved to Cincinnati, OH. Revised slightly as of 2019-10-29, changed the shadow allemande to a direct entry into the hey. Treat the first pass as a half gyre with your shadow followed by the two ladles passing right in the center.
