hook: traveling eye contact during Mary Cay progression
by: Isaac Banner
Starts with ladles back-to-back in the center, facing their neighbors
neighbors start a half hey - rights on ends, lefts in center
gentlespoons start a half hey - lefts in center, rights on ends
mad robin, gentlespoons in front (cw)
gentlespoons allemande left ¾
gentlespoons allemande right ¾ with new gentlespoons ⁋
partners meltdown swing
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.
