Author's Notes:
This dance is one of a series of dances written while investigating the gents chain. The swing flows so well into a gents chain, I thought I'd do what I could do to get into the ladies chain with the same flow. The star left into neighbor allemande does this.
First conceived on February 19, 1998 and first called at our Bowdoinham dance on March 21, 1998 (the first full day of spring) in the middle of a (not too unusual) snow storm. Thanks to all the stalwart dancers that came out that night!
