For a while I've wanted a dance with:
- easy difficulty
- 2 swings
- a courtesy turn (promenade or chain)
- everyone allemandes
- a star
- Ideally ladies doing one move together and gents doing one move together.
- timing that isn't tight (Dayton 1.5 by Perry Shafran came very close, and
I use that, but doesn't leave quite enough wiggle room for too many new

Basically, A Nice Combination / Simplicity Swing / The Baby Rose but with
an everyone-allemandes.

I was stumped. If you have a suggestion, I'm ears!

This is what I've worked together. I called it last Friday at Greenfield,
MA, with maybe 15% new dancers, and it worked well.

don't tell the dancers this. It can be lined up improper and taught
