While it's certainly common to have an allemande/orbit combination rotating 
in opposite directions, I'm pretty sure Liam intended what he described: 
that both the allemande and orbit are clockwise. It sounds similar to Ron 
Buchanan's "Revolving Door" figure.

Since it was written on St. George's Day, how about "A Dance With Dragons"?

Hi All,
Whilst on a walk with my dogs recently enjoying the remarkably good 
weather we have in the UK at the moment, I ended up writing a dance in 
my head that I thought might be quite nice. Well after a bit of 
refinement, it seems to work nicely (although I haven’t tried it out 
with a big group of dancers yet). At the moment It is called ’St 
George’s Day Contra’ for the simple reason that it is St Georges day on 
Tuesday and I couldn’t think of a better name for it, but I am hoping 
that one will pop into my head soon.

Please let me know what you think.

Longways: 1s Improper

A1:



(16) Neighbour balance & swing

A2:



(8) Lines forward & back; (8) Ladies allemande RH _WHILST_ gents orbit 
CW and loop wide ^*1 to flow into…


B1:



(16) Partner balance & swing

B2:



(8) Promenade across {ladies passing R} ^*2 ; (6) Circle L ¾; (2) Pass 
through.


NB



*1 Gents cross the set and turn R wide so that it uses up all the music 
and it will flow into the balance & swing. *2 Ladies need to pass R 
shoulder so that you turning R as a unit and it should flow nicely into 
the circle L ¾.


P.S Here is a link to the music I have used, It’s on Spotify so whether 
everyone will be able to get it, I don’t know
