[Callers] Novelty & Gimmick Contras

Another great whole-oval dance, along with Gang of Four, is the ever-popular Fairport Harbour by Paul Balliet. Advanced dancers can add in a cool trick in that one: suggest that in the B, gents have time to rollaway your partner before passing through the set (with lady on the left - scandalous!) because it's a piece of cake to correct that with the next move, swing your partner on that other side.

My favorite "can only get away with calling it once every few years" dance is Carmen's Contra or variations, which features a truly goofy and fun "clap-clap-bump-bump" figure a la Carmen Miranda. Remind those dancing the gents' role to empty their pockets first.
