by: Moose Flores
formation: four face four
circle left 3 places with the neighbor couple above/below you
pass through to an ocean wave & balance - ladles by left in the center, neighbors by right on the sides
Fan the top & balance - (balance right & back) +
right left through ++
All 8 left hand star 1/2 +++
partners balance & swing - end facing new neighbors ⁋
+Fan the Top: ladles allemande left 3/4, gentlespoons walk up to take right hands with the same neighbor, forming a Tidal Wave of all 8 people.
++ From the tidal wave, just pull by right to courtesy turn your partner, in the spot where you started.
+++ In the manner of "wrist grip", may I suggest "elbow touch". This is the OCTOPUS! Your free right arms are now tentacles. Enjoy your silly fun.
