Levi Jackson Rag Author: Pat Shaw
5 couples arranged in a horseshoe: head couple faces down, with two couples each side facing acrossA1:
Sides half right and left through; heads lead down the middle to the centre of the set; sides half right and left back; heads lead to end of set (4 steps to each of those).A2:
Sides circle 4 once round to the left while heads separate and cast back to place; all do si do (8 steps for each of those).B1:
All five ladies' chain; repeat. (Each woman moves on two places on each half of the chain.)B2:
All take promenade hold and promenade one place anti-clockwise (4 steps). Balance once. All swing.
Keep the set compact, especially during the do-si-do, or the women will have a long way to go to get into the chain. Men should definitely help the women through the chain by stepping forward to claim them.
Music: Own tune
