Based on Furthermore by Scott Higgs, but with a box circulate, rather than the original dances Rory spins, and other fiddling to sort out the positional changes that creates.

Lanny's Back

B2 8

4
partners California twirl ⁋

While the A section is pretty variable and the B section, with its iconic swaps across the ring, is what identifies any "Lanny's" dance, I believe this is the original version of the dance. At the very least, it's the version I last heard Erik call.

Based on Paul Balliet's First Hey, shifted and with one phrase changed. Offers an opening that works much better with a barn-burner of a tune, with a runaway B section. Manages the energy throughout the sequence better than Paul's original dance, in my opinion. At the very least it offers a distinctly more driving and chunky feel compared to the original.
