B3 & B4Optional break as improvised by the caller (preferably without a grand right and left)

Author's Notes:
Call for heads/1's, sides/2's, heads/3's and sides/4's.
A rag is recommended, to help prevent the dancers from bunching up on the cast off and progressive right and left grand.
In B1: 1's may turn alone or as a couple and the cast off may be assisted or not. Leave it up to the dancers.
In B2: the lead couple is at the end nearest the 1's home; they are not the 1's and are not even partners (but the 1's are right behind them, and so are in a good position to assist--Ed.). Ladies go right, gents go left.
The timing in A3 is idealistic. Unless the dancers are very sharp the progressive right and left grand will probably need more time, which you can sneak out of the promonade or the break that follows.

Editor's Notes:
So far to our knowledge nobody has taught or called this dance to this particular sets of notes. We hope the information is complete enough to make this possible and we encourage you to try. The editor and author would be grateful for any suggestions you think would be helpful for others.
