Hey, Seth, glad you could use my dance (California Twirlin')! I would
appreciate any feedback that is generated.

I was sent. I tried to focus on the dances that were the most

· Broken Corners, Alan Cheetham (1/2 contra corners, than the 2's
finish contra corners).
· California Twirling, Janet Levatin (balance, Montana Twirl to face
· Around the Horn, John Nance (slide left, circle ½)
· Trip from Toohoolie, Janet Shepherd (circle, roll away, slide, swing)
· Interwoven Promenades, Chris Page (down the hall à CCW promenade à
up the hall à CW promenade)
· Rosie the Welder, Mark Hillegonds (contra corners with box gnat/swat
(Dave, I have a hard time visualizing all the possibilities with
"Whose Turn" but Cis called it two weeks ago so I felt covered).
The music we used was from the "Tidal Wave" CD. Having hard driving
quebequios music helps. I cannot recommend Tidal Wave enough!
Basically all the dances were a hit except Broken Corners. After 30
minutes of walk thrus, we decided it is not worth the work. A fun
idea, but needs more work on implementation.
I'll be calling "Around the Horn" and "California Twirling"
Possibly "Rosie the Welder" and possibly "Interwoven Promeandes".
Thanks for the fun dances! I'll try to have comments about the
individual dances to the authors later.
