Introductory Call Nine
Honor your Partners - and the
Lady by your side, -          -
All join hands and circle wide.
Circle left half-way 'round, and
Break and trail along that line,
Ladies in the lead and the gents behind.
Gents turn back on the outside track, and
Meet your Partner with your right hand,
All turn back with a Right and Left Grand.
Grand Right and Left 'till you meet your own,
Promenade your Partners home.
Promenade around the town,
Take your Honey right on around.
Promenade with your feet on the ground.
Grape Vine Twist, Call
"Prompt" the following on the last four beats of the intro­ductory call:
"And now, the First Gentleman,"
and continue with the call below:
Take your lady by the wrist, and Around the next with a Grape Vine Twist. Back to the right with a "whoa-haw-gee,'* And around that gent you didn't see. Pop that whip as you come down, Join your hands and circle around. Circle four and don't be late, Break to the next for a figure-eight.
