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.

next neighbors do si do once

Kind of but not really The Second Time Around. Hey-to-allemande offers a refreshing broken-hey-ish redux of allemande-to-hey and creates an illusion of less inactivity in the ladle's role.

The name started as a joke until Ron Blechner egged me on to write an actual dance.

+this is your third ladle

The pivotal place where it can all fall to pieces is the pass the ocean - if dancers aren't paying attention they'll absentmindedly pass through up/down and everything will collapse in on itself.
