Allemandery, My Dear Watson

hook: all the allemandes

by: Ric Goldman

formation: improper

A1 8
next neighbors allemande right 1½
gentlespoons allemande left 1½ end facing partner in line of four, into
A2 8
partners start a half hey - rights on ends, lefts in center
partners swing end a little early to face across
B1 8
ladles allemande right ½
neighbors swing
B2 8
long lines forward & back half-roll ladle right to left
neighbors allemande left 1½ ⁋
  • Half-roll: roll ladles R-to-L, but end with ladles facing out and ladles left hand in gentlespoon's right hand

(Works best with a leisurely tempo to help timing with A2 to B1)

Half hey: partner right, ladles left, neighbor right, gentlespoons left
