This dance was written for the Palo Alto Hallowe'en contradance.
It is a bit challenging, but seems to be the kind of dance that even "mixer-haters" can learn to enjoy. "Lost" dancers re-enter easily in A1. Southern tunes are fine with this one.
Single progression mixer (nobody is missed). Ladies alternate between inner and outer rings but never advance; gents advance but stay in one ring.
This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
