I just remembered, along with Rick O' Shay's Hey, I have one where the progression out of the star is a half hey on the left diagonal, Star Hey Night.

A nice dance...but a tough teach....   )))

Hello all,

I'm on the road for vacation instead of calling, which means that I don't have easy access to dancers to try things with; so I'm pinging the hive mind.

What do folks think about the transition star->hey with the next.

For instance:

Ladies start left shoulder hey
Neighbor right shoulder gyre and swing
Circle Left 3/4
Partner swing
Ladies chain across
Left hand star 1x

The ladies have their left hand in on the star, and usually I avoid a left with one, left with the next transition; but I feel like the swoopy nature of the hey gives it some slack. It also sets the gents up for a turn over shoulder entry into the hey.

It could be a right shoulder in the middle hey, and a balance and swing. I don't have a passel of dancers to try it with.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks, and happy solstice and return of the light to you all.
