Very Touching

I set out to write a dance that included a basket swing and I think this works well.  In walking through the dance by myself I noticed that it seemed as if you were touching someone for almost the entire dance.  All but a brief moment when the basket swing is formed that is, as well as two other possible breaks in contact following the first Star Thru when the couples turn back into the set individually and when the couples progress out of the neighbor swing.  Still... that's why the dance is "Very Touching" and not "Perpetual Contact" though I'm working on that dance!
