[Callers] Hey and wave balance

Here are 2 I wrote.The first one appears in California Twirls. The second one isn't a full hey, but two halves of a full hey, if that's OK.



The Bee's Knees                                                    

Duple improper                                                                     July 17, 1992

 

A1  Balance in a wave across, women allemande left half way

      Balance in a wave, box the gnat with partner (men end back to back in middle)

A2  Hey (pull past partner by right to start)

B1  Gypsy and swing partner 

A1  Wave balance (4), half a hey (8), wave balance (4)


B2  Circle left ¾ and pass through

      Do-si-do the new neighbor once and a little bit more

 

Alternate B2:

      Women chain across

	 Do-si-do the new neighbor once and a little bit more


I like the box the gnat into the hey, and the do-si-do into a wave. I initially wrote it with the ladies chain, but I like the circle left ¾ version better.






Split Infinity

Duple Improper                                                                          July 2011



A1  Wave balance (4), half a hey (8), wave balance (4)

A2  Half a hey


      Swing neighbor

B1  Circle left three quarters

      Swing partner

B2  Circle left three quarters, pass through

      Do-si-do the next

 

Starts with the women in the center taking left hands for the first wave balance. Women then pass left shoulder to start the hey. Everyone will switch positions in the wave with their same sex neighbor when they form the wave again. This requires a bouncy tune, single jigs useful, or something like Rock the Cradle Joe, to get the balances in both parts of the A1.
