Hi Michael, I got your dance when you posted it on SW. I use a simplified version of it quite often
and it always goes over well see http://youtu.be/PGxnxgkPAek
I was wondering about the transition B2/A1.
Do you have the the swing in B2 end facing LOD and ladies roll back to start A1 with next as I've done in my modified version?

Hi Bill - I end the swing in B2 facing the person you swung in the LOD. The dance then starts again with the same person. I don't have the ladies roll back because that is more difficult from a swing than from the promenade.
