Notes
1
Start in ‘noodle’ formation: becket with the ends holding hands to make a noodle.
 
 
 
 
2
End effects: Single couples at each end join in the noodle and do the rest of the dance as a couple, ending A2 facing in to the set with lady on the man’s right 
 
 
 
 
3
It will probably be best to emphasize that you end the A1 facing the same people that you start A1 and that after A2 you will be facing and working with new people.
