All five couples swing partner (8)
Four couples make a square, the zeroth gent in the middle looks up to 1st couple, and the lady looks down to 3rd couple

B2

All promenade once around, 0th couple in front af 1st couple who will change to be 0th couple and end in the middle
0th couple becomes 1st, etc. (16)

There will always be a zeroth couple, starting with 0th, then 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th; 0th will end as 0th. The main part is thus danced five times.



I have as an example used the following for the beginning and end. There is no break in the middle.
