Ric, that looks more like a normal contra than a waltz contra to me. Can you 
share your experience of swinging, or teaching a swing, to waltz music?

Hi Dugan,

One of my favorites is Bob Green’s Alison Wonderland, (improper):
A1           1-8          Nbrs balance + swing
A2           1-4          Circle L ¾
                5-8          Ptnr swing
B1           1-4          Gents star promenade 1x*
                5-8          Butterfly twirl
B2           1-4          Women chain to Nbr
                5-8          Long lines fwd + back
* Consider gents linking elbows to get into this.

Thanx, Ric Goldman

Do you have a favorite contra dance written to fit a waltz tune?  I danced one 
once many years ago and haven't thought much about it since, though it was 
pretty special.

Thank you in advance for sharing some choreography!
