 +A2 7-8 into B1
 +A wonderful moment here as the 1st couple completes the last contra corner turn and move directly into heys on their own sides!
 +B2 1-4
 +Be prepared for the transition to the right-hand turn. Enjoy the sudden change here, from the exciting skipping heys to a calm right-hand turn for each couple.
 +This dance includes different levels of energy, in alternately quiet and explosive figures. The A1 section is a polite introduction to warm up the active couple. Then in A2, the skipping contra corners raise the pace; and subsequently in B1 the activity peaks as the active couple crosses the set to start the heys. Finally, after the quiet right-hand turn, there follows an original, but quiet progression.
 +A dance written in 1975 for **Genny Shimer**, upon her retirement as longtime National Director of CDSS, and which perfectly captures her character and energy on the dance floor.
