Background: Larry Jennings wrote a wonderful dance, "Spalleiminer II", that used the move described in the A section of the dance. By surrounding it with easier moves, "Settlement Swing" makes it more accessible to a wider range of dancers. The dance is named for the Settlement Road School house where we used to dance in Priest River, Idaho.
Warning: some end effects. See also the dance "More Again".
This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
