by: Isaac Banner

formation: improper

Ensure that dancers understand the flow and mechanics of a left-handed chain ahead of the full walkthrough

A1 16
neighbors meltdown swing
A2 8
mad robin, gentlespoons in front
half poussette - ladles pull partners back then left
B1 2
ladles start a hey - lefts in center, rights on ends - until gentlespoons meet
gentlespoons allemande left once to partner
partners swing
B2 8
gentlespoons chain pull by left
gentlespoons start a half hey - lefts in center, rights on ends to new neighbors

B1 half hey is a broken hey - for the ladles it's a half hey but the gentlespoons never cross. When the gentlespoons meet in the center the first time, they allemande left once around back to their partner.
