The Shuttle Contra

By Philippe Callens

duple minor improper contra, Double progression





when you get to the end (after an allemande right once and a half) do the allemande left once and a half with your partner ready to join in the dance again with a gypsy original corner.

The first (only?) dance written inside the Channel Tunnel -- you get shut inside a shuttle train for forty minutes so when Philippe and the band Little Tinkers were on their way to Eastbourne festival on May 3rd 1996 they invented and tried out this dance which Philippe then called at Eastbourne.
