B2 Partner Gypsy Meltdown

Music:
32 bar reels.

Notes:
Teach the Ladies' Dosido as Dosido and Pass Thru, otherwise they will spin and face where they think they are going.

Lasso means the man raises his right hand and leads the lady around him - he doesn't move (except to help the ladies avoid any crashes)

* The most common square dance call after a "DoSi the Ladies" is "You swing mine and I'll swing yours", i.e. a Neighbour Swing
