Named after a long discussion over pizza toppings at an even longer dinner during Louisville’s Dancetravaganza event in May 2016. Make sure to emphasize the turn towards your neighbor during the turn a single, otherwise the hands won’t line up for the star through. More bits and less flow than I'd probably write today, but I'm leaving it here for posterity and because someone might still find it worth calling.
