single file promenade clockwise 1/2 (facing neighbor) [1]
8
neighbors swing
A2 8
long lines forward & back

ladles allemande right 1½ [2]

partners gyre ½
4
single file promenade clockwise 1/2 (facing partner) [3]
8

B2 8
ladles chain
8
star left 4 places ⁋

Chris Page notes:
[1] While looking at your neighbor. Gentlespoons backing up across the set (carefully), ladles follow them to the other side.
[2] A little different from the normal ladle's allemande, as here dancers don't adjust. Gentlespoons should stay put, and stay on the slight diagonal, rather than adjusting to be across from each other. Ladles allemande right 1 & 1/2, then ease out to the sidelines, having traded places, and now facing their partner on the side of the set.
[3] While looking at your partner. Ladles backing up across the set (carefully), gentlespoons follow them to the other side.

An auction dance written for Heather Visscher. She really liked the A2 move from "A Rare Bird" by Bob Isaacs.

Shambolic

by: Moose Flores

introduces moves: right left through, petronella, cross trails

formation: Becket

A1 8
gentlespoons allemande left 1½
8
neighbors swing end facing left diagonal
A2 8
left diagonal ladles chain to shadow
8
right left through
B1 8
balance & petronella
8
balance & petronella
B2 4
cross trails - neighbors across the set right shoulders, shadows along the set left shoulders
12
partners swing ⁋

End effects: while waiting out, when a diagonal chain comes to you, do so.
You will spend part of your time waiting out with your shadow and some with your partner. You will still do every partner swing.
