It's a triple progression dance with no partner swing, which then is medleyed with
Delphiniums and Daisies. It's not on the Caller's Box or Contra DB, which I've
never encountered before!

called this combination once or twice and dancers seem satisfied when I switch dances and
they finally get to swing their partner. Anyone ever encounter this dance? Does anyone
know the choreographer? Thanks!
