by: Moose Flores

A1 8

Fan the top & balance - (balance right & back) +
B1 8

All 8 left hand star 1/2 +++
B2 16
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.
