Laura's Leap

hook: Leave your partner, find them in a long wave

by: Nicholas Rockstroh

formation: Becket ccw

Note shadow on other side of partner

A1 8
right left through
left diagonal ladles chain to next neighbor
A2 8
star left - wrist grip - 3 places to your partner
form long waves - gentlespoons face in, ladles face out
balance & box circulate - gentlespoons cross while ladles loop right ⁋
B1 16
next neighbors balance & swing (the one you met in the chain)
B2 8
gentlespoons allemande left 1½
partners swing

End effects require inactive couples to participate in the left diagonal chain and then change places with your shadow so that the gentlespoon is on the right and the ladle is on the left for the long waves. Written for the 23rd birthday of my dear friend from Louisville, Laura Valentine.
