|Level||med (assigned by the editor)|
|A1||(8) Neighbors allemande left 1 1/2|
(8) With the next neighbor allemande right 1 1/2
Make long waves, with gents facing in, ladies facing out
|A2||(4) Balance the wave right and left|
(4) Slide right one place, passing in front of the other person and spinning clockwise, in the current style of Rory O'More
(8) Swing original neighbor
|B1||(8) Circle left 3/4|
(8) Partners swing
|B2||(6) Right and left through (with a courtesy turn!)|
(2) Roll away with a half sashay
(8) Gents help the ladies into a right hand star 3/4 (gents follow partners)
The roll away with a half sashay is most satisfying when it follows a courtesy turn. Dance might have been called Bye, Bye Balto'more. Introduced at Lovely Lane just before my move to North Carolina in August, 1991.
In B2 I prefer taking a full 8 counts for the right and left through followed by 2 counts for the roll away and 6 for the 3/4 star.
This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
