Trip to Troy Dave Variant SourceDir: 2011-02-Misc.txt Author1: Rick Mohr Author2: Dave Notman Level: Easy-Intermediate QT: Improper A1: (4) Balance the ring (4) Circle left 1/2 (8) Swing neighbor A2: (4) Ladies Allemande Right 1/2 (4) Allemande Left with partner 3/4 (2) All turn in place 180 CCW (6) Allemande LEFT with shadow 1x B1: (16) Balance and swing partner B2: (8) Circle left 3/4 (4) Balance the ring (4) California twirl CallingNotes: Introduce shadow (opposite sex person in LEFT diagonal couple). NotesOther: Note the two left hand moves in a row. Some critics will say that the left/spin/left sequence is less than satisfying because the dancer's hands are moving away from each other as they end the 180 spin. I have yet to dance that sequence, so I don't know if the criticism is correct. The three left-rotation moves in a row followed by a swing may be dizzying. An earlier version of A2 started with Ladies Allemande Left 1/2 + pirouette, but the Allemande Left following a swing is awkward and not customary.
