Sweet Scent of Sage – Contra Dance

I’ve been toying with a very partner-centric dance I’ve named for my wife
Sage. Below is the original (successfully tried) and two new variations I
hope to try out soon.

The AFAIK unique A1 Mad Robin to A2 slide left transition I originally had
as a slide on the left diagonal to diagonal waves, but it proved nearly
impossible to teach without a demo. The revised dance achieves effectively
the same result with more familiar calls to make for a more conventional
walk-thru. The variations try to further improve call familiarity by
omitting the “hook”.

Thanks to Lynn Ackerson for pointing out there being a shadow in the wave.

Here’s the dance: Sweet Scent of Sage.
