I was aware of Lynn's dance but not Ron's when I came up with the
following. As a happy coincidence it's a sort of hybrid of the two in 32
bars.

I originally envisioned the last part of the B2 as an outward-facing CCW
circle 1/2 (i.e.: "circle left" to those in the circle) - that's the path
the individual lines/4 end up taking on the floor. As the lines/4 approach
worked, I never ended up trying an actual outward circle formation (concern
re: possible dancer shoulders/elbows strain).
