Type: Contra Dance, Singlet or Doublet
Another from my early first set of purpose-built Singlet/virtual dances. Was striving for variety in simple yet satisfying dances, focused on just a few co-located dancers. This could be seen as a much re-processed & simplified version of The Spaniard’s Latte (To Go) as I refined my virtual dances approach.

Previously known as: This dance was originally named after a band I knew of from the 80’s, Joy Division, as the phrase seemed to encapsulate the COVID-19 impact on our dancing communities. I had no idea of the horrific back story of that phrase/name but was thankfully advised of it by a dancer and immediately renamed this dance (plus one other that referenced the same band’s reincarnation name). Please do not continue using the original name for any purpose associated with this dance.
First called by (I don’t know, it’s been called a lot).
