March for Andrea

by: Isaac Banner

introduces moves: revolving door, balance the ring, California twirl, roll away, give & take

Andrea Nettleton told me she wished callers would do more down the halls, but all the options in my box were pretty basic and I wanted something that used it as less of an "away we go" and more of a buildup.

down the hall and turn alone

Tom's Queue-less Carousel

A2 8
circle left 3 places
8
partners allemande right 1½
B1 16
gentlespoons start a full hey - lefts in center, rights on ends left shoulder
B2 16
partners meltdown swing

Becket-ized version of Tom Hinds' The Carousel, but without the chunky feeling of long lines forward and back (technically the slice is almost lines forward/back, but dancers can ooze it a bit more, especially since it's a slice and take).

Queue-less, not clueless, because this time The Carousel has no lines. Unlike my program, which at the time had 5 LLFB and one just had to go.
