CR-CL transistion

A fairly straightforward dance that starts with a circle left, and ends with a circle right.

While sitting in the wonderful Wayward Hall of the Scissortail Dance Society, after having a fabulous time at Flamingo Fling; I wrote a new (I think) dance. The many open windows of the barn brought David Kaynor’s “Open Doors” to mind, and I wanted to include multiple courtesy turns, because the Oklahoma dancers and organizers are so courteous.

I didn’t get to call it as one of the 40+ dances I ran over the weekend, as I wrote it at the end. But I hope to go back and call it for them at some point.
