Bradley Smith Notes: Originally, the last figure of this dance was a neighbor do-si-do 1 1/2, but I usually swap it for the ring balance and pass through to make the progression as simple as possible for inexperienced dancers.

Last Hey

by: Isaac Banner

formation: Becket

A1 8
circle left 3 places
4
balance the ring
4
pass through ⁋
A2 8

4

4
partners allemande right ¾
B1 16

B2 16
partners balance & swing

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.

Tom's Queue-less Carousel

by: Tom Hinds / Isaac Banner

introduces moves: slice, meltdown swing

formation: Becket

A1 8
slice left and straight back and gentlespoons pull neighbor ⁋
8
neighbors swing
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.

Lanny's Back

by: Erik Weberg

Replace the give/take with a circle 3/4

introduces moves: give & take, pass by, California twirl

formation: improper

A1 16
neighbors meltdown swing
A2 8
gentlespoons give & take partners
8
partners swing
B1 4
balance the ring
4
ladles pass by right shoulders
4
balance the ring
4
gentlespoons pass by right shoulders
B2 8
balance & petronella
4
balance the ring
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.
