GRAPEVINE TWIST
b) Promenade, Indian style,
Lady in the lead and single file,
Turn right back and swing 'em aiohile.
Repeat 2 for third couple ending with 3 (a). Repeat again for fourth couple ending with 3 (b).
THE EXPLANATION:
1.  With no introductory call the dancers come skipping on the floor in single file, hands waving and everybody "hol­lering." Before they come in, they line up as first, second, third, and fourth couples with the men leading. If there is more than one set, it is necessary for the first man of each set to break from the line and skip around the circle where his set is to be in a direction contrary to the prome­nade direction; that is, clockwise, until he has all his couples in position.
2.  a) The first gentleman takes his partner by both hands
and skips once around in one spot with her near the center of the set.
Twist 'em right, now twist 'em wrong.
