What a great story. And the dance looks really useable and fun too: I'll try it out
early on at my next dance.
I love the idea of naming it "Clearwater Pete-ronella"; what better than a pun
to immortalize the event? Ha!
Faced with a largely beginner audience at a recent festival, I came up with the following
when the band wanted high-energy Petronellas in the A's. I suspect it isn't new,
but have been unable to find it in the usual sources. Thanks in advance for whoever has
the author/title; otherwise I'll have to come up with one -
A1. Balance, Petronella, balance, Petronella
A2. N1 balance, swing
B1. Gents allemande L 1 1/2, partner swing
B2. Circle L 3/4 and pass through, N2 dosido and form ring
Yes, I know - I need to write a new Petronella dance like I need a hole in my head. Some
things just can't be helped -
