Hi Maia, Not sure if you've already run this one (I'm behind on e-mails). Personally, I would caution that getting dancers out of the habit of Rorying to the right first might be hard.
I have in my box a similar dance, called Wildabeasts (that I wrote in 2017), that replaces your A2 with a (8) Raven's Chain across (4) Circle RIGHT 1/2, pass through (4) Pass through to an Ocean Wave That sets you up with your partner in your right hand, instead of your left hand. I will say, that while I wrote it and it's in my box, I've never actually called it (along with about 150 other compositions). As for dances I have actually called. There's a variation of Donna Hunt's "This Could be the Start of Something" http://donnahuntcaller.com/dancesByDonna.html that starts with the Down the Hall, and has the ravens slide all the way to their partner for a balance and swing instead of ravens allemande->partner swing. Erik Hoffman's "Missing Duck" has an A2 Rory, and a B2 P B&S, as does Fidgety Feet/Fickle Finger of Fate by Mark Richardson/Don Lennartson. None of those three have a neighbor swing though. For that, I'd turn to Bill Olson's "Dancing With Amy" Becket-CW A1 ----------- (8) Circle Left 3/4 (8) Neighbor swing A2 ----------- (8) left diagonal Ladies’ chain across to your shadow (8) left hand star (to a long wavy line with your partner) B1 ----------- (8) Balance and slide to the right (as in Rory O’More) (8) Balance and slide to the right (as in Rory O’More) B2 ----------- (16) Partner balance and swing On Thu, Mar 28, 2019 at 11:14 PM Maia McCormick via Callers < firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > I wanted a closer with a Rory O'Moore and a partner balance and swing. > This is what I came up with.
