2.  a) First lady leaves her partner and advances to second
gentleman. She joins right hands with him and they swing once around.
b)   She returns to her partner and joining left hands with him swings once around (often, in this dance, all the other couples join left hands at the same time and swing around).
c)   Each gentleman now swings his corner or left hand lady in the regular dance or swing position.
d)   He promenades her around and back to his position. This means that each lady advances one place.
