Looks like a nice dance, Kelsey. The pushback/ricochet into a swing is one of my favorite combinations of moves.

I must say, however, that I'm not familiar with the Jersey twirl. It is just a CA twirl, but with the opposite hands, and then you use the joined hands (Gent's left, Lady's right) to pull into the swing?

Thanks again for sharing!  :)

Venturing Vortices
Improper by Kelsey Hartman 3.18.2017
{Started out as a dance written for the Ides of March (called Berkeley dance 3.15.2017) called "Take a Stab at It,"
(Sharon Gavin suggested the title) 
but the B1's timing didn't quite work. Loved the flow of the A1 and A2 so re-wrote the ending and renamed it.}
A1: (16) Balance the ring and jersey twirl to swing neighbor 
A2: (16) Gents start 1/2 hey and ladies ricochet back to partner SWING
B1: (16) (eFace away from partner) pass Shadow #1 by left, Shadow #2 by right, LEFT shoulder round Shadow #3, RETURN pass #2 by right, #1 by left 
B2: (8) Circle Left with partner and current neighbors 3/4, CA twirl and (8) Circle Right 1x around (move it!)

Would love comments...thanks, Dan Veino for sharing the jersey twirl...
