DFace partner and right and left through
Ladies chain to partner
EPromenade home
Swing partner

Author's Notes:
I believe this is the first square where I used the swing to swing transition, a move pioneered by Ted Sannella in a contra dance. I think he would be pleased to know his idea has found its way into square dancing.
