I thought up a cool little ending to a Revolving Door and have incorporated
it into a couple of new dances.  I call the action "Revolving Door to a
Wave" and it's as follows:

from couples facing across -  Ladies start an Allemande Right 1x while
depositing the gent they were with on the other side, as the ladies come
back across and are finishing, they slide nose-to-nose past the other gent
(who has turned a 3/4 turn to their right) to put the gents in the middle
of a wave across. Gents have left hands in the middle and right hands with
the lady they did not start with. If you are familiar with MWSD, it feels a
bit like the call Spread.    Here are the dances that use it.  Only the
second has been road-tested.

Please share your reactions.
