A modified version of Projectile Possums which makes both ricochets into swings the same direction. This requires making both heys start by the left shoulder. Branched from the base dance at the suggestion of Cis Hinkle who pointed out that one of the ricochets was in a counterclockwise direction which could make the swing transition awkward. I am not sure how awkward it is in practice (no one commented on it when I walked it), but better to have the option just in case.
