I wrote the following dance with a Rip and Snort. Due to the slight
modification and squishy timing of down the hall it works out. I think it
usually takes about 4 -6 beats in my dance.
Rip and Snort
A1: (8) Balance the ring, Rip and Snort (1s arch 2s dive through,
separate, maintaining connection, end in a short facing down the hall line with
the 1s in the middle.)
(8) Down the Hall, 2s gate the 1s (1s keep walking forward and 2s
back up to end with the 2s in the middle and 1s on the outside)
A2: (8) Up the hall
(8) Gents Allemande Right 1 1/2
B1: (16) Partner Balance and swing
B2: (8) balance the ring, petronella
(8) balance the ring, California twirl
