Then (c) they go directly from this swing into the Allemande left and Grand right and left, as in the previous dance. They then promenade back to their places.
The whole dance is repeated for the second couple, be­ginning the call with:
Second couple out
To the couple on the right
And circle four.
And after a promenade it is all repeated for the third couple, and finally for the fourth.
After the fourth, or final promenade, you can again call:
You knoiv where And I don't care. Take your honey To a nice soft chair.
With this the dance is over, and they are all pleased because the dance is so simple and symmetrical and such good fun. If the caller times it right it keeps them moving back and forth through each other with a fascinating sort of routine.
(Note: If any difficulty is encountered with the above explanations, it might be well to turn to pages 167 and 258 for the regular line by line explanations in the second part of the book.)
