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.

"The motion in B1 does seem magical – while the ladles Petronella over and back across the set, the gentlespoons do consecutive Petronellas along the side, in effect progressing behind his partner’s back."
