Written for Zoë Madonna around New Years 2016 because she wanted a dance with a roll away into a swing, and workshopped by some lovely dancers at NEFFA ‘16. All roll aways include a half-sashay.

Encourage dancers to take their time with the promenade in A1, as promenades out of a courtesy turn take less time than usual. In A1, chain with the neighbors straight across (these will be new neighbors).
