SWING AT THE WALL                               179
THE EXPLANATION:
1.  See page 148 for directions or substitute any other intro­duction given there.
2.  a) First couple advances to second couple.
b)   The first couple separates and passes around the sec­ond couple, lady to the right and gentleman to the left. They meet beyond the second couple and, taking a regular dance position, swing twice around.
c)   The second couple separates by taking a step back­ward from each other, and the first couple passes between them. It is best for the second couple to take a step or two in the opposite direction (toward the outside of the square) so they pass around the first couple while the first passes between them. Each gentleman takes his own partner in dance position and both couples swing.
d)   See page 160 for directions or for possible variations of the call.
e), First couple passes on to the third couple and repeats from (b). Then they go on and repeat with the fourth couple and finally return to their places, when each couple does a balance.
3.  See page 153 for directions, or substitute any other end­ing given there.
Repeat 2 and 3 entire for second, third, and fourth couples.
