This dance was written by Adam Carlson for a dance he was calling with the Seattle band Tapsalteerie.  He also wrote another ricochet dance called Queen Bee which I don't happen to have...

This doesn't look like a Becket dance, but rather simply improper, based on
what I'm reading.  Seems for this to work, your partner has to start across
the set from you.

I'm also curious as to how other's might walk this through.  Do the dancers
starting the hey each time have to make a wide loop while their partners are
"pushing back"?
