At the end of A2 everyone is in a long line down the center of the set, men facing partner, ladies with their backs to each other.
The dance is based on Lisa Greenleaf and Clark Baker’s dance Relay The Orbit. Despite their strenuous warning about doing the dance with people who were not familiar with the key figure of Relay The Deucey I attempted to teach this at the 2007 Sidmouth International Folk Festival. My intention was to teach the Relay The Deucey figure over a week of daily workshops with the hope that by the end of the week we would have learned it well enough to do the dance. My intention was thwarted by a significant change in the attendees each day, so I was forced to give up and substituted Double Spin The Top for Relay The Deucey. The title is a pun on Erik Hoffman’s Waiting for The Passport as I had been waiting 7 months for news on my USA visa.
