A2 Men Weave Top man leads other men to weave around back of first lady, in front of second lady, behind third lady and back to place. If space is limited the second lady can step back.
B1 Top Couple Top couple skip down the centre of the set. While the top couple is going down the set the second couple only move up one place.
The old top couple return to second place. (the order is now 2-1-3-4)
B2 Line of Three The top 3 ladies (2-1-3) join hands at shoulder level in a “W” formation. The men do likewise. The lines of three slip step down the set for 8 steps. The fourth couple move up one place while this is happening.
On the way back the centre person of each line of three drops back to become the new bottom couple. ( 2-3-4-1).
