For those unfamiliar, the California twirl here is a Nevada twirl, which is a California twirl with the opposite hands. People waiting out at the ends should stand with the ladle on the left and the gentlespoon on the right or else the California twirl will end up leaving you facing someone of the same role which breaks the shadow action in the zig zags. Named after The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim and a line in Miracle of Sound’s “Sovngarde Song” based on the game.
