A2(16) Partners balance and swing
B1(8) Long lines go forward and back

B2(16) Hey, ladies pass right shoulders to start

Author's Notes:
This dance borrows the hey to star transition from "Washington Hey" by Ralph Sweet and the star right once and a quarter, allemande left combination from "The Fiddler's Star" by Roger Whynot.
"The Ritz" was the name given to the alternate dance facility at Pinewoods Dance Camp during the 1984 season when the C# Dance Pavilion was being rebuilt.

Editor's Notes:
In A1 after the star your partner and trail buddy are both in the same line as yourself.

This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
