Developed by me from a spontaneous absurdity
based on the Washerwomen's Branle which occurred at a St Valentine's Day
Assassins' Ball a few years ago...
4 Doubles LRLR, glancing suspiciously from
side to side.
Turn to your partner and do two singles
LR, the gentleman making overhand stabbing motions while the lady spreads
both hands on her upper chest. Optional Aaaargh!
Do two singles LR, the lady making underhand
stabbing motions (everyone knows that the way to a man's heart is through
his stomach, up under the ribs, right?) while the gentleman clutches his
midriff. Optional Oof!
Turn back to the centre of the circle and
double left whilst clubbing your neighbours with imaginary blunt instruments
Take hands gingerly and double right.
Double left whilst clubbing your neighbours
with imaginary blunt instruments
Raise one arm half way up your face as
if hiding behind a cloak and execute 3 kicks LRL while turning left on
the spot, then fling open your cloak to reveal... that you are about to
join hands again. Repeat the above.
