The First Couple repeats the figure with the Third Couple and then with the Fourth Couple, after which all couples swing once around with a Waltz Swing and then dance the chorus of All around your Left Hand Lady, See-saw your pretty little Taw, Allemande Left, Grand Right and Left, and then PromeĀ­nade home with Partners.
The call is repeated with the Second, Third, and Fourth Couples in turn leading the dance.
Introductory Call Seven
All jump up and when you come down,
Swing your Honey around and around.
Gents to the center with a Right Hand Star,
All the way around the way you are.
On the Corner with your left hand, a
Right to your Partner, Right and Left Grand.
Set your brakes and take up the slack,
Meet your Honey and turn right back with a
Right Hand Swing on that old back-track.
Listen, children, to what I say, Meet your own and go the other way. Now you're right and you can't go wrong, Meet your Honey and Promenade along.
Promenade around the hall, Promenade that old corral.
