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 & 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.
