Double Dolphin Hey by Jonathan King. (Aug. 2013)
[IMPROPER:] [A dolphin-hey is a hey-for-3, with the two ONEs acting as a single person. To turn-around, each pivots in place; now #1Lady is in front of #1Gent. When they pivot again, #1Gent will be in front of #1Lady. At all times, the #1Gent is dolphin-side of the #1Lady. (After 16 beats, all four folk are back where they started; the ONEs in the center, facing dolphin-side, Gent-before-Lady.)] Dolphin: Cross-1-2 Pass-3-4 Pivot-5-6 Return-7-8

Done to contra music, this dance is challenging. Done to waltz music, each 2 contra-steps becomes a single waltz triple-step; e.g, a parenthetical (8) means four waltz triple-steps.    In waltz timing, for “Lines-fwd-and-back” I recommend going fwd on the R-diagonal (triple-step 1), fwd on L-diagonal (triple-step 2), then reversing for the remaining two triple-steps. With hands-joined, this is very satisfying.

Waltz and Break.
