Author's Notes:
In the rollaways the gent will move the lady on his right side to his left side as he takes her place. It is most helpful to have dancers note the second person they roll away with for future reference. Also it helps much to tell the dancers that the second swing in phrase C is back the other way from that in which you have been progressing on the rollaways.
