Dance Notes:

  • Consider starting the teaching at B2 and circle 1/2 since the B2 transition is the only tricky part of the dance.
  • Interaction is mostly with partner and shadow.
  • This dance is for Mia Bertelli, written and called as part of a Santa Fe contra dance weekend.
  • Danced the day it was written.
