(Notes by Chris Page)
[1] A mad ladle is a sideways do-si-do, ladles starting in front of their neighbor.
[2] A no-hands circle left 1/4 in your groups of four. Essentially ladles cross the set while gentlespoons sidestep to their left along the side of the set.
[3] Here you look at your neighbor across the set, and gentlespoons start by going forward to their right, ladles behind to their left, gentlespoons passing in front of partner.

Written and danced at Summer CDH. Elisabeth Monica from Louisville wanted to know if any dances existed with both a star promenade/butterfly whirl and a revolving door. I didn't know of any but was happy to oblige. The title comes from the foundational assertions of mathematical proofs, and references the fact that I think any combination of two figures can be incorporated into an enjoyable dance.
