Level: Advanced
Setup: Improper + Ones snuggle up in Varsouvienne Promenade position, 
  facing down + #2 man cross set and stand next to his partner (lady on 
  the right, both facing across).
QT: Improper

A1: (8)  While Twos Balance & Swing, Ones promenade down + Ones Turn as 
  Couples {1}
    (8)  Ones promenade back + Ones cross (lady goes in front) {2}
A2: (16) Ones Cast + Neighbor Swing {3}
B1: (16) Give & Take (Ladies take); Partner Swing
B2: (4)  Long Lines Forward Four Steps
    (2)  Two steps back
    (2)  Ladies continue back, but men advance to next set {4}
    (8)  {New} Men Allemande Left 3/4 + #2 man crosses to partner + #1 
      man snuggles up to his partner in Varsouvienne promenade position 

CallingNotes: {1} Promenade turn as couples - man backs up, lady walks 
  forward.  {2} "Ones Cross" - The ones trade places with each other 
  while moving up the set.  The #1 man leads his partner in front of 
  him.  {3} "Ones Cast" - after crossing, the ones separate.  The #1 man 
  walks around the #2 lady (who stands still).  The #1 lady loops to her 
  left (mirroring her partner's motion, but around a phantom).  #2 man 
  walks across the set to meet the #1 lady for the swing.  {4} Instead of 
  continuing back with their partner, #1 man faces down, #2 man faces up 
  (i.e. both turn 1/4 turn to their right).  Men pass their current 
  same-sex neighbor by the left and take left hands with the next man 
  (their new same sex neighbor).  {5} The odd starting position has been 

NotesOther: I think this dance will require a fair amount of room.  I'm 
  not sure whether the swing with neighbors will cause the lines to drift 
  down the set.  A slightly simplified version of this dance would have 
  the ones turn alone before coming back up the set.  Then they wouldn't 
  have to cross back when they get back to their neighbors.  Although not 
  in itself difficult, the novel progression and odd starting formation 
  will make it all but impossible to call to dancers who don't already 
  have the dance in their heads.

One possible simplification would be to start B2 with a Circle Balance + 
  Men Trade.  This doesn't flow as well into the men's allemande that 
  follows, but would be easier to teach.

The #1 man and #2 lady will enjoy the way the man can sweep the lady into 
  the swing.

NotesOtherPre: After the one's cross while coming back up the set, the 
  view looks like this (twos facing across and ones facing the caller).  
  Man #1 is to the left of lady #1.

F2   M1 F1

The ones separate.  #1 man walks a complete circle around lady #2 (who is 
  to his right).  Meanwhile lady #1 walks a circle around a phantom to 
  her left.  Man #2 crosses the set to meet lady #1 for a swing.

This gives

M1    F1
F2    M2

After the give & take (ladies take) and partner swing you get

M2    F1
F2    M1

The men take one step into the center and face direction of progression.  
  They pass their current same-sex neighbor by the left and join left 
  hands with the next man:


Then the men allemande left 1x until the #1 man can snuggle up to his 
  partner for the promenade down the set.  The #2 man gets ready to swing 
  his partner on the side.
