Hothfield Hey

Source: Composed by John Sweeney
Formation: Contra; Improper

A1 #1s Lead Down (#2s Move Up); Turn Alone
#1s Lead Up, Gate into second place
A2 Ladies’ Chain x 2
B1 Full Hey (ladies starting Right shoulders)
B2 Flutterwheel
Sweep a Quarter; Pass Through

Music:
32 bar jigs or reels.

Notes:
This is an easy no-swing contra. The biggest challenge is getting contra dancers to do "#2s move up" without being reminded all the time, since it is not common in modern contra choreography.
