Positronium Promenade

QT: Improper

A1: (8)  Long Lines Forward & Back
    (2)  Circle Left 1/4
    (6)  Ladies Allemande Left 3/4 {1}
A2: (8)  Ladies scoop partner, star promenade, ladies whirl men
    (8)  Gents do a ladies chain {2}
B1: (16) Men cross set and swing partner
B2: (16) Give & Take (ladies take) Neighbor Swing

CallingNotes: {1} The ladies have a sharp change of direction going into 
  the allemande left.  Gents - help your neighbor out by giving her a 
  strong tug with your left hand.  {2} men pull by right while ladies 
  point right shoulder across the set.  Then ladies back up while hand 
  casting the man around.  End facing across with the man on the right.

NotesOther: By calling "Gents Do a Ladies Chain", I figure that may 
  differentiate it from what I've been calling a "Gents Chain" which has 
  the men pulling by left, and then ending with the man on the left.

Hope this isn't a poor choice of title as Positronium is unstable and 
  tends annihilate itself in a very short period of time <grin>.

JH - The one spot where your last sentence below might come true would be 
  in A1.  It would be a pretty abrupt change of direction for the ladies 
  to circle left 1/4 then allemande left.  I wonder if you couldn't have 
  the ladies allemande right, continueing in their direction of travel.  
  Ladies are more used to the clockwise butterfly when they do the 
  twirling.  I danced a dance last night that had the gents pull by left 
  and the ladies do a clockwise courtesy turn that was really nice.  This 
  would work well to launch the guys straght across to the partner swing 
  as it sends them clockwise around the minor set.  If the gents are 
  launched straight across out of a ladies chain they are traveling 
  counterclockwise around the minor set  at their partner and some 
  maneuvering would be needed to enter the swing.  I would have the gents 
  pass right out of a ladies chain to start them curling clockwise into 
  the swing.  I can see why Mariah gets annoyed with me.
