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?

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: http://dancevideos.childgrove.org/ecd/ecd-modern/308-starring-loretta Bob Green St. Louis _______________________________________________ List Name: Callers mailing list List Address: Callers@lists.sharedweight.net<mailto:Callers@lists.sharedweight.net> Archives: https://firstname.lastname@example.org/ ________________________________ This e-mail message (including any attachments) is for the sole use of the intended recipient(s) and may contain confidential and privileged information.
