I just was watching the video of that very dance #2 on YouTube this morning, and the title
is there: it's Love at First Swing, by Bob Isaacs.
#1 is pretty close to Cheat Lake Twirl. I think it's Nils Fredland's modified
version of Cheat Lake Twirl, but I thought his B2 was a little different than what you
have listed here (which I think is circle L 3/4 with the next couple, DSD this N to ocean
wave - but don't quote me on that).

Subject: [Callers] Putting names and authors with dances
I've been doing a bit of calling-card box cleaning, and I was wondering if any of you
could help me put some names and authors with these dances.
Here they are:
#1 - by ???
(wavey line, ladies L in center)
A1: Balance wave, slide R, Bal wave, slide L
A2: Neighbor Bal & Swing
B1: As couples, go forward to center, gents draw Pt home and Swing
B2: Circle L 3 places, make wavey line
Bal wave, walk forward to a new wave
This is very similar to Cheat Lake Twirl by Perry Shafran, Saturday Night Line by Joseph
Pimentel and Rock the Cradle Joe by Ridge Kennedy. Perhaps it's simply a
folk-processed one of those, but George Marshall called it at Flurry and I thought it
might have it's own name and author.
#2- by ???
A1: Bal ring, spin R, Bal ring, spin R
A2: Bal ring, California twirl, new Neighbor swing
B1: Circle L 3 places, Partner Swing, face down
B2: Down the Hall, 4 in line
Gent 1 turn alone, Gent 2 R-hand high, L-hand low
#3- by ???
A1: Neighbor dosido, Neighbor allemande R 1 1/2
A2: Gents pull by L, Pt gypsy & Swing (though the timing must be a bit off there-
maybe the Gents pull by crosses the end of A1 into A2)
B1: R&L through, Ladies chain back
B2: Hey for 4, look for new Neighbors
#4- by Jim Kitch becket
A1: Circle L 3 places, Neighbor swing
A2: R&L through, Star L 1 x, look for new Neighbors
B1: New Neighbor, Bal, box the gnat
Mad Robin, gents pass in front first
B2: Gents cross, passing L-shoulders,
Partner gypsy & Swing
Thanks for any help!
