Here's something new:

Signs of Life 
duple improper contra
by Jill Allen

A1  circle R X1, M allem L 1 1/2 to face P
A2  hey for 4, start by passing R
B1  gypsy and swing P (or B & S)
B2  circle L 3/4, balance the ring, calif twirl to face the next..


Columbia Contra 
duple improper contra
by Gene Hubert

A1  Allem R N aprox 1 1/4, W allem L 1/2, allem R P X1 ending with Women facing each other in the middle
A2  hey for 4, W pass L to begin
B1  B & S P
B2  W chain, star L

I call both of these quite frequently.  Both have timing which is forgiving for beginners.
