Enchanted Forest, Medium-Spicy Variation--to be tested

by: Anet Levgard

introduces moves: star, circle, swing, custom, long lines

formation: Becket CCW

There are two-person Rory O'Moore figures in here, if not taught yet do that--pairing gentlespoons with gentlespoons and ladles with ladles--before getting into the choreography.

A1 8
star left 3 places to find new neighbors
8
circle left 3 places to be on same side as partner
A2 16
partners balance & swing
B1 8
Gentlespoons left hand balance together and apart, Rory O'Moore into spot vacated by the other.
8
neighbors swing
B2 8
long lines forward & back
8
Ladles right hand balance together and apart, Rory O'Moore into spot vacated by the other

When the gentlespoons spin into one another's spots, neighbors can try to catch each other for the swing.

A slightly more flowy--and harder for new folk--dance is the Spicy variation of this.

introduces moves: custom

formation: Becket CCW

Dancers should already know Rory O'Moore. There are two-person, same-role, diagonal Rory's O'Moore in this dance. The medium spicy version of this dance may be accessible to newer dancers.

Mad Gentlespoon: like a mad ladle but gentlespoons go in front first

Gentlespoons take left hands, balance together and apart, Rory O'moore into the spot vacated by the other gentlespoon
B2 8

Ladles take right hands, balace together and apart, Rory O'Moore into the spot vacated by the other gentlespoon

Note the flow from a swing into gentlespoons going in front for the mad gentlespoon.
