See also Franklin flank by nils Fredland for similar (allenandes to star to 
Allemande, similar feel) and Carol Ormand’s Double Dare.

As is said, half stars are devilishly tricky.

Perhaps someone has fabulous teaching tips with half stars?

I have an English dance that has a similar sequence, with one half star, then a 
full star with new neighbors and another full star back with original 
neighbors. As Chris suggests, I find that part a bit trickier to teach than I 
expected. The difficulty is in the orientation (particularly on the ends), not 
the timing. I set the dance to a half-length version of Larry Unger's Two 
Rivers which is in waltz time, so the timing could be different in contra. I 
think the hands-across style star used in most English dances facilitates that 
kind of transition. I think it creates the nice flow pattern you envision, 
looking forward to trying it. Nice idea, Luke!

Here is the similar sequence in waltz time:
