FOUR IN A CENTER LINE
With many sets on the floor, all advancing and retiring in perfect time, this is an impressive change to watch and a very simple dance to do.
In fact, it is so simple that it is a favorite with beginners, in which case it is best to use the substitute call for (g) on the opposite page. Then each gentleman gives his right hand to the opposite lady in the circle of four, swings her around behind him. He then takes his partner by the left hand and swings her to the home position.
