"Song in the night" was the second dance I called in my End-effects workshop, 
and you're right that "Treat your partner as a 
neighbour" doesn't work here.  I do mention "dancing with ghosts" a few lines 
later, and generalise the rule to "Keep doing as 
much of the dance as you can", and I agree that here you need to do a star 
three-quarters with ghosts.

Here I think it's easier to do a left-hand turn with your shadow.

The really important thing is to get dancers _thinking_ about end-effects, 
rather than just reaching the end of the set and 
switching their brains off!
