|A1:|| Form a right- star but don't go round, balance in and out twice. Right-hand star once around.|
|A2:|| Ditto with left hands.|
|B1:|| Do-s- do opposite. Turn your back on your partner and promenade opposite (men turning to your left and not going anywhere) to end with women in partner's place.|
|B2:|| Do-si-do partner. Turn your back on the opposite couple and men promenade partner back to place and then move on to the next couple, men passing left shoulder.|Music:
The vital instruction is "Turn your back on your partner" in B1
. If you don't say that, people will do all sorts of strange things!
