OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    C1

Allemande left your corner, turn your partner right hand round
Men star by the left 3/4 round
Turn corner by the right, all the way round and then
Turn partner by the left, 4 ladies chain
Chain the girls across, you turn, chain back
Chain 'em right on back, turn and promenade the track
Promenade your girl, go dancing two by two
Promenade this Rose of San Antonio


FIGURE (1)    A1, corner progression

Head couples promenade just halfway round you do
Come down the middle with a right & left thru and turn same 2
Wheel thru*, do a right & left thru, turn your girl around
Dive thru, star thru, left wheel thru* and a right & left thru
Turn your girl that way, then roll a 1/2 sashay
Swing the girl in front, swing her twice around, I say
Promenade that girl from down Texas way
Promenade that Rose of San Antone


FIGURE (2)   

Head couples promenade, just halfway round you do
Come down the middle with a right & left thru
And then you turn the opposite right hand round
Turn your partner left and now
Find the corner dosado, go back to back you know
See saw round your partner, that corner girl you swing
Swing her round and round, promenade that ring
Promenade that girl from down Texas way
Promenade that Rose of San Antone


*Wheel Thru (originated by Paul Moore, Columbus, Ohio): with 2 couples facing each other, on command "wheel thru" the person in right-hand position of each couple acts as a hinge and wheels 1/4 to right, while adjacent partner (in left-hand position of each couple) splits opposite couple by passing right shoulders to complete movement of wheeling as a couple 1/4 to the right. Left wheel thru is counterpart, with left-hand person in each couple acting as a hinge for wheeling as a couple 1/4 to the left.
