gentlespoons roll away neighbors with a half sashay
2

shadows allemande left once
B2 16

Depending on tune bounciness, can call B2 as either balance and swing or walk-around and swing (or leave it as dancers' choice).

Written in summer 2015 for Kate Fais on the occasion of her dying her hair pink, and first called January 2016 at the Youth Trad Song Weekend contradance.
