M.A.D. About Dancing

hook: simple waves dance to get the hall back on track

by: Robert Cromartie

formation: improper

Starts in ocean waves, ladles in the middle taking left hands, neighbors taking right hands, 1s facing down

A1 4
balance wave right, then left
neighbors allemande right ½ (and reform wave with gentlespoons in the middle)
balance wave left, then right
gentlespoons allemande left once
A2 16
neighbors balance & swing
B1 8
circle left 3 places
partners swing
B2 8
circle left 3 places and step into original ocean wave ⁋
balance wave forward and back, and walk forward to new waves

The A1 balance LEFT then right is editorial; I think it flows better but as far as I can tell it wasn't specified in the original dance. (Also, experienced dancers often balance to the right here out of instinct, so either really emphasize the balance left or don't bother.)
