If you have a great dance that you want to call but it has a circle, and you have called
too many circles, then why not just rechoreograph it to remove the circle?
For example you can replace
Neighbour Swing; Circle Left 3/4; Partner Swing
Neighbour Swing; Balance the Ring; Ladies Cross Over (by the right shoulder); Partner
Neighbour Swing; Ladies Balance F/B with Right Hand; Ladies Pull by; Partner Swing
with no effect on the rest of the dance.
Both versions send the lady smoothly across the set, flowing into her partner's arms
with the right momentum. The second version can be especially satisfying if the ladies use
just enough tension to catapult each other into their partner's arms.
