I like the way you can hand off from shadow to partner. That feels exciting.
What is the aesthetic consideration that leads you to choose a promenade
My personal experience is that the line tends to tighten up, and it's hard
to get across without bumping you neighbors. I think a R&L through doesn't
have this problem, possibly because we're not traveling together.
Sometimes, I convert it to a traveling swing in an especially tight line
because at the moment of lining up with the larger line, my partner and I
are oriented perpendicularly to it, which takes up less space up and down
the hall. Not sure you could teach that. It requires precision.

I know the list has had big debates about shadow swings in the past. If
you don't like 'em, you can pitch this. This dance was written for someone
who wanted a shadow swing, and is something I might call at a shadow-themed
festival session. As shadow swings go, I like the idea of swingus
interuptus going from shadow to partner.
To my knowledge, it's a new composition. Haven't gotten to test it yet.
But I present it for comment and/or collection.
