The First Swing Belongs to Me SourceDir: 1-DaveN-Quick-Entry.txt Author1: Dave Notman QT: Improper A1: (8) Neighbor Left Gypsy 1.5 (8) Ladies Allemande Right 1.5 A2: (8) While Men Allemande Left 1.5, Ladies Orbit CW 1/2 (8) Partner Swing B1: (16) Give & Take (Ladies take), neighbor swing B2: (8) Promenade Across (4) Pass Through Across (4) Cross Trail. NotesOther: Here's the story that goes with this dance. Neighbor Gypsy - The ladies have doubtless noticed their partners flirting around with that neighbor lady. Ladies Allemande Right 1.5 over to your partner. The men now try to pursue that lovely neighbor (men allemande left 1.5) + ladies orbit. Surprise men! You have been out maneuvered yet again. Swing your partner. Having asserted their claim to their partners, the ladies now want to follow up on that intriguingly flirty gypsy. Long Lines go forward - ladies take that neighbor home and swing him. I doubt I'll present the story. My recollection is that people just want to dance, and will be impatient with even a short vignette. I have yet to check this dance against my database. It could be a duplicate. The Give & Take is a pretty weak substitute for a balance. I think I'll have to classify this one as a no-balance contra. I could replace the Gypsy with a neighbor Balance + Swat the Flea, but that kind of destroys the story line.
