A1 Balance wave of four Walk forward to wave of four with N2 Balance wave of four Neighbor N2 allemande right 1/2, walk back to N1 A2 1/2 hey (ML,PR,WL) Neighbor N1 swing B1 Men allemande left 1 & 1/2 Partner swing B2 Circle left 3/4 Pass through Neighbor N2 do-si-do 1 & 1/4 to wave of four
A variant of "The Road Less Travelled" by Kathy Anderson, adding a neighbor swing and elimanting the men allemande right/swing transition.
The problem with the above dance is the reverse progression is indecent. If a couple immediately trades sides after the first progression in the A1, trouble will quickly ensue, especially since the next move is a half hey, and a confused couple could keep getting kicked out to the top of the set. This isn't a major problem, but there's no need for this dance when there's dances that progress to a hey indecently, like "Winter in Summerland" or "Window Shopping."
