Author's Notes:
One of the easier dances in this collection.
For the splitting in phrase A you can do a gating figure or the splittees can arch and only the splitters will drop hands with partner and then dive through. In phrase B your neighbor is the person on the man's left/woman's right.

This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
