DANCE DESCRIPTION

On the first break pattern after the two lines pass thru, the ladies will roll across in front of their partner(a left-face one and a half turn for ladies), men will face to their right (clockwise) and will be facing their corner for left allemande. In the main pattern, after head couples box the gnat across with their opposite, they face the sides and circle half, then do an inside arch-outside under putting the heads in the middle, sides facing out. Everyone then does a turn back (don't change sides) to join hands and circle. This will put two men and two girls together in each circle of four. Gents will break to a line of four (gents will be on each end of line). The lines pass thru and everyone turns back individually. This puts ladies in middle of lines, and ladies will crosstrail thru, lady on the right crossing in front of lady on the left, going to original partner for a swing. In the middle break, the call is directional up to the roll back figure. At this point in the first break figure, the side couples are halfway from home, and the number 1 gent and the number 3 lady are standing behind the couple number 2 who is now in number 4 position. Number 3 gent and number 1 lady are standing behind couple number 4 who is standing in number 2 position. Note that outside gents will have lady on their right. On the roll back, the inside couples will separate, gent making a left-face turn and lady making a right-face turn and walking around the couple standing behind them to end on outside of square facing inside, but now behind the head couples that were standing behind them. The head couples will immediately cross-trail to original corner for left allemande. The other roll back break is directional with the roll back fundamental being done the same way, gents rolling out on a left-face turn, ladies a right-face turn and coming back in behind a couple to face the middle. These figures break pretty fast, so stay on your toes.
