Starting formation - square. A call that has the sides doing one part while at the same time the heads are
doing another. Heads move forward into the square (4 steps), turning one quarter (90°) on the fourth step
to face partners and back away to the sides of the square (4 steps). Turn one quarter (90°) to face the
original opposites. Back away to the corners of the square (4 steps) and turn one quarter (90°) to face
original partners and walk forward to home (4 steps). Do not turn. (Total to here: 16 steps.) From this
point the action is reversed. Heads back away from their partners (4 steps), turning one quarter (90°) on
the fourth step and walk forward to the opposites (4 steps). Turn one quarter and walk forward into the
center toward partners (4 steps). Turn one quarter (90°) to face opposites and back up to home (total:
32 steps). While the head couples are doing the first 16 steps, the sides start by facing their partners to
back away and do the second 16 steps. Completing this, the sides do the first 16 steps, while the heads are
doing the last 16. The principle of walking three steps and then turning (or reversing) on the fourth step
is followed throughout. This call may be broken into fractional parts by the caller directing the number
of steps required. The call may also start with the heads, or other designated dancers, directed to face.
STYLING: Mens' arms in natural dance position; ladies work skirt with natural swinging action. When
moving forward and backward as a couple, normal couple handhold is desired. TIMING: 32 counts.
