Swinging Chainsaws – DI – Don Veino 20171006

Type: Contra Dance, Duple Improper
Status: DRAFT (but proven via transitive property…)

This dance is one of a set that grew out of my work on (Like) Juggling Chainsaws. There is a mirror role and move dance to this one, Dosi Dude, which could be paired with this for an alternating dance.

The dance is pleasantly simple yet slightly different due to the Dosido to face away transition. The Chain/CT and pull into the See Saw on the side should work well (the mirror move in Dosi Dude does). Encourage the dancers to use the full measure of each phrase of the music for the moves – the dance could get “big” as a result.
