Dirty Rotten Double Crosser [V2] – DI – Don Veino 20140723

Type: Contra, Duple Improper
Status: Public, Proven

My second double cross-trails dance, see also Double Crossed Again! Rewritten 6/15/15 to retain the main theme but make the timing more forgiving in light of feedback I’d received on Double Crossed Again!

Tune fit and difficulty can vary by selection of options for A2. The V2 dance with neighbor allemande A2 debuted successfully at the Thursday Contras NEFFA Caller Showcase at the Concord Scout House on July 9, 2015.

(10) PARTNER SWING

B2
