NOTES: The name refers to the "surprise day" I gave my girlfriend the day before our big spring 2002 "Dance in the Park", a contra dance held twice a year on an open air stage in Zilker Park. The dance was written the morning of the dance in the park. I wanted a dance that was easy to call, easy to dance and that gave the dancers a lot of one on one time with their neighbor and partner.
