>  Adam Carlson's Queen Bee

A little history here:  Adam was the first to take this dance flourish and put it in a dance.  He called it the figure a Queen Bee hey after a neighborhood in Seattle.  I liked the move but wanted a name that reflected the action of the figure, so I called it a ricochet hey  and wrote a dance with the same name; the dance is a riff on Tony Parkes' Flirtation Reel.

My original dance had alternating 1s and 2s, but that worked only with experienced or up-for-anything crowds.  I don't call this any more, as other folks have written much better dances!
