Holy Cannoli! – DI – Don Veino 20160415

Type: Contra, Duple Improper
Status: Proven

I wrote this dance on the way home from the 2016 New England Folk Festival’s Friday session, after indulging in some delicious cannoli in the food hall.

Suggest dancers take hands in Long Lines to stretch out up & down and then reform their hands/4 to ensure there’s enough space for the A2 action.

First called by Linda Leslie at the Monday Contras series at the Concord Scout House on 4/25/2016.

A1
(4,12) Neighbor Balance & Swing

A2
(6) Circle Left 3/4 (to face up/down, looking at your P – on Gents’ home side)
(10) Mad Robin 1+1/2 (moving – instead of looking – across set, Gents going Left to Right through center first)
[so this is at a right angle to what most people think a Mad Robin orientation is typically]

B1
(16) Partner Gypsy & Swing (on Ladies’ home side)

B2
(8) Ladies Chain
(8) Half Hey, L Pass Right to start (and look towards progression…)

See also my Madly in Love dance for a similarly rotated Mad Robin across the set.
