 +B1, B2\\
 +Try to make smooth transitions from the partner gypsy to the neighbor gypsy, continuing through to the partner turn.\\
 +This dance and lovely tune were written by **Eric Leber,** and published in the Pinewoods Fund Dance Collection, 36 dances assembled by **Fried Herman** and sold to help in the purchase of Pinewoods Camp. Fried later re-published the dance in Ease and Elegance, making a few small changes in the A section to create a smoother choreography.\\
