# Contra Dance

## Rang Tang Contra (variant)

### Peter Foster (as called by Diane Silver)

(Duple improper)

#### A1

- (4) Neighbor aleman right 3/4
- (2) Larks pass left to cross the set
- (4) Partner aleman left 1x
- (2) Larks pass left to cross the set
- (4) Neighbor aleman right 1x

#### A2

- (2) Larks pass left to cross the set
- (4) Partner aleman left 1x
- (2) Larks pass left to cross the set
- (8) Neighbor swing.

#### B1

- (6) Circle left 3/4
- (10) Partner swing

#### B2

- (8) Long lines
- (6) Circle left 3/4
- (2) Pass through

Note: the whole A part is basically unphrased. You just keep going
back and forth until you reach the swing, which eats up all the
remaining time. A tune with no A-part phrasing but rocking B-part
phrasing would be a great fit.
This is a variant I picked up from hearing Diane Silver call it; the
original
is similar with the As and Bs the other way around.
