CRAPO Dance Recall Notice DCAv1, 20160227
Dear Dance Leader,
The Choreography Registration And Publication Office* (CRAPO) Safety
Division (SD), in partnership with dance author Don Veino, jointly announce
a voluntary recall of his dance composition "Double Crossed Again", version
In order to prevent dancer dissatisfaction and maximize enjoyment for the
future, we have agreed this joint voluntary recall. Mr. Veino has
re-imagined the dance to address a flow violation and has revised the
composition to improve dancer enjoyment.
As a potential consumer of this composition (via participation on the
Shared Weight Callers forum), we provide this notice to you. As sole
compensation for your potentially sub-optimal experience, CRAPO SD have
reached an agreement with Mr. Veino to supply you a fully tested second
revision of the original composition plus a bonus dance for your
inconvenience (his new "Sneaks & Peeks"), see below.
Should you wish to opt out of this recall, please delete this entire
message and discard your copy of the original version dance in a safe
manner, in compliance with applicable local hazardous waste regulations.
Abed A. Dan, S.E.
CRAPO Chief Safety Engineer

Tune: Daniel Boucher's "Circular Reel" was used as inspiration and fits
Cautions for dancers: as a DP you're never out, and note your handy hand
_and_allemande_direction_ changes at ends.
Named after a game our 4+1/2 year old daughter Raeden calls "Sneaks", where
she tries to stay in my blind spot while I try to catch sight of her
(giggling herself silly the whole time).
Dancers seem to really like this one, called at two Concord Scout House
gigs during Feb. 2016. Short video at https://youtu.be/nF15xR3EwN4 .
*This is all intended as an amusing way of getting out an improved revision
to my original dance. This is a joke organization, really! -Don :)
