If your dancers aren't used to out of set dances, be sure to warn them
not to get too relaxed when they are out at the end of the set.
Someone will be coming to them at an unexpected time and if they are
used to relaxing or socializing while they are out at the ends they
will be caught off guard.
In both dances below, after dancers are in Becket, have them take
hands in long lines to ID shadow. In one hand is partner, the other
hand has the shadow.
A couple I like
Groundhog Daze Becket
A1 Shadow gypsy
A2 Circle left 3
Balance the circle, 2's arch, 1's dive thru
B1 Next neighbor balance and swing
B2 Long Lines forward and back
Ladies pull by right, partner allemande left 3/4
Run Rooster Run II Becket
A1 On left diagonal, gents pass right and swing your next neighbor
A2 Ladies chain
Left hand star once around
B1 Partner balance and swing
B2 Right left thru
Long Lines forward and back
In Run Rooster Run, while you have the dancers in long lines
Identifying their shadows, also have the guys look straight across at
their current neighbor, then left to the next neighbor gent they will
pass right shoulders with and then one more place left to ID that
next neighbor they are going to swing.
