I ♥ Faeries – DI – Don Veino 20170125

Type: Contra Dance, Duple Improper
Status: Public, Proven

Writtten in response to a challenge on the Shared Weight Caller’s Discussion List, here’s my take on a non-glossary way out of the Dublin Bay style Down-the-Hall figure – via a believed unique twist on a Mad Robin. First called (by me) at the Thursday Contras dance at the Concord Scout House on February 2, 2017. For a further simplified take on this theme, see my dance I ♥ Unicorns. The “♥” in the title is spoken as “Heart.” The title comes from our daughter’s current fandom for all things re: Tinkerbell and friends.

Neighbor Balance & Swing, end facing down (Twos in center)

Line/4 DTH and Back, Dublin Bay Style
(4 steps fwd down the hall, turn single to face up, continue 4 steps down in reverse, 4 steps fwd up the hall, turn single to face down, continue 4 steps up in reverse)
Bend the line (so Twos are above the Ones)

Mirror Mad Robin – Ones Through the Center First (starting up towards head of the hall)
[G1 and L2 dyad moving CW, L1 and G2 moving CCW]
1s Swing in Center, end facing UP

1s Half Figure 8 up through the 2s (around opposite role N, to end BELOW – improper and facing progression)
2s Swing, end facing UP

Tune suggestion: Becky Tracy’s Black Rock
