Author's Notes:
The San Francisco Folk Music Club marks the New Year with an annual music camp held at Camps Campbell and Harmon, redubbed "Camp Harmony" for the occasion. I wrote this dance and "The Harmony Supper Line" in the dining hall one evening during the 1986/87 camp.
I used the first half of Kirston Koths' dance "Triskaidekaphobia," but replaced the second half (a variant of Fred Field's "Symmetrical Force") with simpler figures. The last time through, I usually call B2 as:
(4) Pass through across the set
(12) Partners swing

This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
