Type: Contra Dance, Becket Left/CW
The name and artwork for this one comes from our daughter. She’s currently crazy about kitties and her highest compliment is when something is “kitty awesome.” Unusual enough to be interesting, this one seems to work for just about any crowd – folks often comment on liking it.
Star Left 1x (to back on side w/PNR, note these star NBRs)
Big Oval RIGHT
Big Oval Left PAST star NBRs
w/Next NBRs LDY/RN Right 1+1/2x
NBR Balance & Swing
Give & Take to GNT/LK, PNR Swing
[ALT: PNR Pousette CW around NBRs; PNR Swing]
End effects: Get in on the oval to (re-)enter the dance – you may have to “insert” yourself between the star couples.
Tune suggestions: Driving reels; anything with strong 8-beat hinting
