8
partners swing

Rick Mohr notes: While enjoying Mike Boerschig's Happy as a Cold Pig in Warm Mud I wondered, could you enjoy flying stars with both shadows instead of just one?

This dance is the result. It's more accessible than you might expect for a dance where you leave the minor set twice, because finding your partner rights the set in both B1 and B2. In B1, watch for your partner in the other star and meet with an allemande; in B2, watch for your partner in the other star and meet with a swing.

I'm not usually a fan of "shadow / partner / other shadow / partner" sequences because you keep repeating the same longish sequence with the same people, and so don't mix enough. But because the stars in this dance involve a changing cast of neighbors, you get the thrill of flying to your partner twice without the tarnish of identical setups

Rory S'More (variation)

by: Devin J. Pohly

introduces moves: hey, form long waves, box circulate

formation: Becket

A1 8
gentlespoons allemande left 1½
8
neighbors swing
A2 16
gentlespoons start a full hey - lefts in center, rights on ends - ladles ricochet first time
B1 0
form long waves - gentlespoons face in, ladles face out with right hand to partner
8
balance & box circulate - gentlespoons cross while ladles loop right
8
balance & Rory O'More right ⁋
B2 8
balance & box circulate - ladles cross while gentlespoons loop right
8
partners swing

Variant intended to make everyone's placement after the hey more obvious. I think I'd prefer the original for an experienced crowd.
