The Wolfe and the Spero

hook: traveling eye contact during Mary Cay progression

by: Isaac Banner

formation: improper

Starts with ladles back-to-back in the center, facing their neighbors

A1 8
neighbors start a half hey - rights on ends, lefts in center
neighbors swing
A2 8
gentlespoons start a half hey - lefts in center, rights on ends
mad robin, gentlespoons in front (cw)
B1 4
gentlespoons allemande left ¾
gentlespoons allemande right ¾ with new gentlespoons
partners meltdown swing
B2 4
balance the ring
pass through to an ocean wave & balance - ladles by left in the center, neighbors by right on the sides
ladles allemande left ½

Between the extra time from the mad ladle and the rapid-fire nature of the allemandes, there should be more than eight counts for the partner swing, but it's still a short gyre.

During the first walk-through, have the dancers do a ladles allemande left once around to get into position.
