  • Junket Square

    January 9th, 2011
    contra, music  [html]
    I wrote a square yesterday, trying to make one that works well for dancing informally in a kitchen. In contras the dance repeats after 32 bars so the caller can drop out. Dropping out is nice for your voice, and nice for the dancers, but normal squares don't work with it well because they have breaks. So, a square mixer designed for junkets:

    A1

    • (8) Into the middle and back (Originally: P dosido 1.5)
    • (8) Ladies Star L

    A2

    • (8) Partner aleman R 1.5
    • (8) Gents Star L

    B1

    • (8) Left hand to partner, wavy ring, balance, slide right
    • (8) Balance, slide left

    B2

    • (16) New partner (person in your right hand) balance and swing
    I called this at our house last night, and I think it worked well.
