Right you are, Jack, though I want to read Colin's post in detail; I've had
a skim and he's put in much thought.
In the dance that I'm hoping to call (Mad Slice) the travelling is actually
done not with partner but with a neighbour with whom is visited Shadow 1
and shadow 2. At various points before finally getting clear of the end,
neigbbour is at least shadow 1 and probably shadow 2 but I need to make my
head hurt some more to get a full understanding. So far, though, it looks
as though dancing with ghosts should make it simpler and, in spite of there
being two shadows, it is quite straight forward to work around the ends and
get back successfully to one's partner.
Song in the Night is too complex for my crowd at my skill level as caller,
though I can see it being a useful ghost dance, as you suggest.

dances where you go out and then in and then out, not necessarily with your
