To do an 'extended twirl', start as though doing a normal California twirl but at the end pull the joined hands between yuo and then let go as you turn to face back in. The net effect of the extended twirl is that you end up facing in the original direction but have changed places with your twirlee.
Susan Brehm bought the right to commission a dance from me at the 2010 Sharpes Assembly (Sebring, FL) silent auction. She asked that the dance be dedicated to Catie Geist, local dancer, teacher and organizer of the Sharpes Assembly and specified a number of figures that she would like included. This is one of a four dance suite that I produced for the commission.
