Hanter Dro #4: Elmo’s Nuts Hey (IVFDF 2013 #6)

This figure is … well … nuts. It’s easy to watch it and think you can see it’s some normal kind of hey, until you realise you’re mistaken and it really isn’t. Nevertheless, the moves that each person makes are pretty simple.

Stepping: for each 6-beat unit, everyone is moving on their right-left-right-hop, and stepping on the spot for the following left-hop. End the right-left-right-hop facing the direction you will be going in next.

In order to describe the movements, consider the positions in the set to be:

A B
C D
E F

2 and 6 have it easy.
2 starts at B, goes across to A, bounces back to B, to A, and so on.
6 starts at F, goes across to E, bounces back to F, to E, and so on.

1 and 5 go in a triangle clockwise
A
C D
E

1 starts at A, goes to D, goes to E, goes to C, goes to A. (Repeat)
5 starts at E, goes to C, goes to A, goes to D, goes to E. (Repeat)

3 and 4 go in a triangle anticlockwise
—B
C D
—F

3 starts at C, goes to F, goes to D, goes to B, goes to C. (Repeat)
4 starts at D, goes to B, goes to C, goes to F, goes to D. (Repeat)

Put it all together and it’s magic. Kind of nuts, but also kind of magic.
