B1: roll away directly into a swing (no balance) is very satisfying
Original choreography has a new neighbor do-si-do after the pass thru in B2. I removed the do-si-do and added a balance the ring prior to the pass thru. Dancers seem to want to associate the B2 do-si-do with the A1 bal&sw and occasionally drift off the phrasing because of it.
