4

Inspired by Du Quoin Races by Orace Johnson.

B2 progression/teaching point: After balancing the ring, imagine long lines, and imagine the rollaway occurring in long lines, with the gentlespoons not moving. In order to progress the partnership along the side of the set, the gentlespoons need to NOT move left - instruct them to take a small step back/out of the set to make space, and then shift just a smidge further to the right to join the ring with new neighbors. Keep the roll aways tight (arms springy!) to avoid collisions.

B1 partner swing may be a balance and swing or right gyre and swing, depending on the music and the dancers' energy for that many balances in a row.
