1c ½Reel4 with these cnrs, pass Lsh round P to face 3cnr (1cnr persons) ; ½Reel4 with these cnrs, at end turn RH to 2pl own sides

A quote: »the key that has always made this dance so wonderful is the flirting that dancing couple can do on bars 9-10 and 13-14 ; <...> if you actually set to your partner, advancing and at the last moment just slipping in BtoB to face and turn the appropriate corner, it's tremendous fun. The moment is all too rare, as apparently few teachers teach it this way, but it's a moment I savour.
