A1: Lines fwd and back; top 2 couples and next 2 couples right hand star while bottom couple right hand turn.
A2: Lines fwd and back; same people left hand star or turn.
B1: Tops galop down 8 steps and back.
B2: Tops cast out and down, make an arch, all follow and come up through the arch.
C1 & 2: Complete circuit of dip and dive, started by the bottom couple diving.  If you're at an end you always go under.  Stop when back to where you started.  Some people manage a swing at the end.

The dip and dive sometimes needs careful explaining.
