The first Contra Corners dance that I ever wrote. Written for Rosie Wildman from Columbus, OH in honor of her graduation; she said the Mad Robin and Contra Corners were her favorite figures, and I was happy to rise to the challenge. This is technically a variation I used at Dance Trance 2016, but I greatly prefer it to the original. Alternate active couples for a more equal experience.
