Here’s a very simple one that my friend Jimmy Akin wrote that I think fills the bill:

Instant Beckett
Formation: Beckett
by Jimmy Akin


1.     Forward & Back

2.     Men Dosado (R diag.)

3.     Ladies Dosado (L diag.)

4.     Partner Swing

5.     Left Diag. Right and Left Thru

6.     Straight Across Right and Left Thru

7.     (Ladies lead) 1/2 Hey

1/2 Promenade across the set.

The list is one of my hand-outs for callers' classes at camps, so the folks who'll be using it are likely to be nervous, brand-new callers.  To that end, I'm looking for sturdy, hard-to-break, low-piece-count dances.  In a perfect world they'd be composed of simpler glossary figures.

This perfect becket that I'm looking for should _not_ start with circle L 3/4, and should not contain petronella twirls.  Bonus points if it doesn't have a whole hey, since I've already got a couple of whole hey dances in the list.
