Written to go with the tune Vladimir's Steamboat during NEFFA 2008. Inspired by musician and dancer Julie Vallimont at one o'clock in the morning. April 27, 2008

If the dancers back up too far during the roll-away, then they have a hard time getting to the balance. Experienced dancers seem to adjust well. Having the dance paired with the tune seems to be key to dancer's enjoyment.

First called at the Mill City Contra Dance in Manchester, NH May 16th, 2008.
