A1: (8)  Long Lines Forward & Back + Slide Left
    (4)  Ladies Cast CW to stand behind Partner
    (4)  Ladies give Partner a push.  Man walks across the set
A2: (8)  Long Waves {1} Balance & Spin Right
    (8)  Varsouvienne Promenade Across with Neighbor {2}
B1: (8)  Ladies Allemande Right 1x
    (8)  Neighbor Swing
B2: (8)  Circle Left 3/4
    (8)  Partner Swing

CallingNotes: {1} Men are facing out.  {2} Man catches neighbors left 
  hand with his left after the spin to the right.  With left hands 
  joined, man turns in place CCW and cuddles up to his neighbor in 
  Varsouvienne promenade position, facing across.  Promenade across and 
  as couples turn to face in.  This sequence will take a bit more than 8 
  beats, but that's ok because the following Allemande will take a bit 
  less than 8.

NotesOther: I wanted to repeat the cast and push across sequence with the 
  men doing the pushing the second time.  I don't think that sequence 
  will work well after these moves: Chain, RL, Swing, promenade across.  
  This made it rather difficult to construct a dance in which you have a 
  swing with both your partner or your neighbor, and the two cast and 
  push figures.  The Rory O'More to Varsouvienne Promenade transition is 
  vaguely similar so I settled on that.

This dance has two unusual moves in it.

Jim's comment - I bet you could squeeze a neighbor swing in.  What if you 
  did long lines forward, gents roll neighbor away with the ladies doing 
  an extra half roll to start the cast.  You could end the dance with a 
  short neighbor swing and have an improper progression with long line 
  and roll new neighbor away.  Of course you would have to resequence to 
  set up the partner swing.  TODO: CHECK THIS OUT.
