ALLEMANDE BREAKS #2

 

An original dance called by Marvin Shilling from La Veta, Colorado

Western Jubilee 577B


All the way around your left hand lady – right back home and swing your baby

Now swing your lady go ‘round and ‘round – allemande left your corner

Sashay ‘round your own – men star right to the opposite girl

Turn that lady with a left hand whirl – star by the right three quarters around

For a triple allemande – going allemande left and the ladies star

Men run around but not too far – allemande left and the men all star

The girls run around but not far – allemande left, right and left grand

Every other girl with every other hand – meet that gal on the other side

Promenade to high and wide – promenade single file

Lady in the led go ‘bout a mile – men turn back swing a little while

Swing that lady go ‘round and ‘round – promenade single file

Lady in the lead go one more mile – men turn back and swing a little while

Then allemande left and allemande thar – a right and left and you form a star

Right and left make a little old star – back right into a back up star

Now swing right around and meet your girl – promenade eight go ‘round the world

Promenade two by two – now right back home and swing a few


Then allemande left head couples star – side couples run around but not too far

Allemande left the sides will star – heads run around but not too far

Allemande left Alamo style – right to your honey

Balance forward, balance back – swing with the right on a half way track

Balance out and balance back – swing with the left just half again

Balance forward and balance back – swing with the “right” just half again [original has “left”]

Balance forward and balance back – now meet your honey and promenade

Promenade now single file – lady in the lead go ‘bout a mile

Now go the other way and you make a little wheel – right hand wheel and roll it along

girls reach back with your left hand – allemande left and a right and left grand

Now corn in a crib and wheat in the stack – meet that girl and turn right back

Turn right around and go the other way – then up that river and around the bend

Then you meet that gal and turn again – turn right around and right and left grand

You meet your gal and promenade – promenade now three by nine

Right back home and sure is fine


The head two ladies chain to the right – turn right around with all your might

Four ladies chain across you go – a new head lady chain to the right

Four ladies chain with all your might – do-si-do (do-pa-so) ‘til you’re all half tight

Corner right back to the bar – into the middle like an allemande thar

Back right up in a back up star – now swing right around you got your girl

So promenade eight go ‘round the world – promenade three by nine right back home


Now two and four goin’ to swing and whirl – now side two ladies chain to the right

Turn right around don’t take all night – four ladies chain with all your might

The new side ladies chain to the right – four ladies chain you meet your own guy

Do-si-do (do-pa-so), partner left and a corner so – back to your honey with a once and a half

All the way around to the right hand lady – with a wagon wheel

Catch her by the left like an allemande thar – you back right in to a back up star

Back and back and not too far – now break in the middle a full turn around

Corner right now pull her by – allemande left with your left hand

A right to your honey a right and left grand – right and left go ‘round the ring

Meet that lady and promenade – promenade two by two

Promenade eight go home with you – honor your partner and your corner too

And you wave to the gal across from you – thank you folks, I guess we’re through
