Chris notes: Written June 17th, 2007. At a fundraising dance for the Concord Scout House, Bob offered as a silent auction item to write a dance for the winning bidder. I won the item and suggested that we write a dance together. After a productive session where we wrote many dances from the two fragments I brought to the table, the end result was "Give the Scout a Hand" and "On the Rebound".
This cool part of this dance is when the ladles are backing up from the ricochet, the neighbor gentlespoon can put his hand on her left shoulder and "catch" her into the swing. The ladle must raise her left arm to put it over gentlespoon's shoulder without giving him a whack across the face. I've found demonstrating this with a group of experienced dancers helps quite a bit.
