Sitting here having breakfast with a caller friend, and her take on this
was just to follow it with a much more linear dance -- down the hall, pull
bys along the sides, etc.

What to call after a dance with a lot of clockwise
I understand there are some Australian contras where they choreographed a
counter-clockwise swing. Of course you would have to be careful with that
as most people have never practised CCW swings. The CCW swing then
provides momentum into moves you wouldn’t usually do after a swing. If a
heavily CW-orientated dance has a Partner Swing then my wife and I often do
it as a CCW swing anyway.
You could do a no-swing dance!
I was taught by a professional dancer that one way to overcome dizziness
from too much CW rotation is to jump up and down to get the “jelly” in your
ears to settle. So why not try a dance with lots of bouncing: gallops,
