Hi Esther,
   If anyone has not mentioned it, I feel there is a kink in the flow trying to go from a petronella to a chain.  As you spin R, it is the left hand which feels available as you face the set because your body has been rotating clockwise, even as it move CCW around the minor set. So there will be this washing machine action to get into the chain.  You might be counting on the claps to arrest that movement, but I still feel it's not an especially satisfying entry into the chain.  A gents chain, otoh, would be peachy.

What, to you, is the hook in this dance? What were you going for?

Hey folks,

Has anyone seen this dance already?

A1: Balance the ring & petronella
       Ladies Chain
A2: Full Hey, Ladies pass R (16)
B1: Ladies Chain
      P Allemande L
B2: Balance the ring & Petronella
       Balance the ring & California twirl

Also interested in other dances that have a Ladies' Chain to into Allemande Left (with the one you chain to) combo. I think I might have seen it somewhere, but I can't remember where.
