Notes
1
The balances in the Rory O'More go the opposite way to usual
 
 
 
 
2
Slice (right) = move forward as a couple to the next couple on the (right) diagonal and then fall straight back as a couple so that you end facing them
 
 
 
 
3
If you take the full 4 bars for the promenade then the ladies only need to go once around in the allemande right. However, dances tend to take less than 4 bars in the promenade and move into the ladies allemande right early thus the suggested twice around
