Dance #10 was a test dance for a more counterclockwise replacement A1/A2 of Serendipity:

Untitled Serendipity test dance
by Chris Page
A1 Neighbor gypsy
   Neighbor swing
A2 Men allemande left 1 & 1/2
   Partner swing
B1 Ladies chain
   Neighbor promenade, women turn around to form long waves, men facing in, women facing out, right to neighbor
B2 Balance long waves
   Neighbor allemande right 3/4
   Balance wave of four
   Walk forward to N2

The transition worked fine, though people progressed about two beats early. If I were going to bother redoing this dance, I'd make the B2 Balance long wave, slide right, neighbor allemande left 1 & 1/2.
