This week we continue with our four-person move flourishes (thank you again to Julie Crow and Mike Lyons for helping us out!); this week we play with Petronella spins!
Only one caveat this week: the roll-aways will make you and your partner trade places; unless you're dancing switch, make sure there are enough Petronella turns to get you both in the places you want to be in by the end of the sequence. This one may confuse new dancers, so use with caution.
With patty-cake, however, it doesn't matter which place you're in or whether it's with your neighbor, your partner, or your shadow. It's also a fairly basic flourish that can be led on just about anyone and if it's not answered -- no harm, no foul, dance goes on, no special potential for injury (hooray!).

Carry on Dancing,
