RIGHT AND LEFT FOUR AND SIX
d)   On to the next and circle four. Docey-doe with the gent you know. The lady goes si, the gent goes doe,
e)   On to the next with a four and a half. Right and left four,
And a right and left six.
Right and left on,
And a right and left back.
f)   Balance home and everybody swing,
3. A left allemande and a right hand grand. Hand over hand around the ring. Hand over the hand with the dear little thing. Meet your partner and promenade.
Repeat 2 and 3 for the second, third, and fourth couples.
THE EXPLANATION:
1.  See page 148 for directions or substitutions.
2.  a) First couple advances to second couple and joining
hands they circle half around so that the first couple is on the outside and the second couple toward the center.
b)   First couple then do a right and left through (see page 127) and, while the second couple turns around, the first couple continues on with a right and left through with the fourth. As the first couple turns around in place, the fourth continues on with a right and left through with the second couple. The fourth couple turns and stands in the second couple's place while the second couple continues on with a right and left through with the first. This leaves the first couple in the center, the second couple standing in the fourth couple's place and the fourth couple standing in the second couple's place.
c)   First couple advances to third couple, and joining hands they circle full around to the left, finishing with a docey-doe (see page 160).
