Well, I wrote this one, and the B1 has  balance and star through to  
start, and then balance in a circle and petronella turn, and then  
more of same.

When Hester and Peter Met

Duple improper         March 23, 1997



A1         Allemande right neighbor 1 ½

          Men allemande left 1 ½

A2         Gypsy and swing partner

B1         Balance neighbor and star through*

          Balance in a circle and petronella turn

B2         Balance in a circle and petronella turn

          Balance in a circle and petronella turn^


*Women give left hand to neighbor man’s right hand. I tell people to  
end their partner swing close enough to their neighbors to make the  
balance on time.


^Just turn a bit more and you can slap right hands into that allemande.
