Here's To The Ladies

By Christine Hale
Composed 1997

Levelmed (assigned by the editor)
FormationBecket, ladies on left
A1(4) Ladies gypsy once
(12) Partners swing
A2(8) Ladies chain
(8) Left-hand star
B1(16) Neighbors gypsy and swing (ladies turn to the right out of the star)
B2(8) Long lines go forward and back
(6) Circle left 3/4
(2) Slide left one place (lady in the lead)

Editor's Notes:
To form the initial lines, have the 2's cross over (rather than the 1's), then circle left 1/4. Or line up in Becket formation and ignore the fact that the ladies will end up to the left of their partner.
