The call is repeated three more times for the Head Couples and then four times with the Side Couples leading the dance.
The pattern of this dance is that of a weaving serpentine rather than a series of One Hand Swings. The Corner Ladies are picked up aon the fly," as they dance toward the gentlemen for the Promenade; the gentlemen pivot in a left-about-face turn as they take right hands with the approaching ladies, join­ing left hands over the right hands to take the skating position without halting the counterclockwise movement of the ladies.
Introductory Call Ten
Honor your Partners, bow and smile, Join your hands and circle a mile.
Back to the right, you're going wrong, Ladies in the lead and the gents come along. Ladies turn back on the outside track, Gents keep going on the inside track, Meet your Partner with your right hand, Go right on with a Right and Left Grand. Grand Right and Left 'till you meet your own, Promenade your Partners home, Promenade with a smile on your face, Take your Honey back to place. Balance to your Partners all, Square your sets and listen to the call
