As danced in Rivenvale


Verse I.

A1&2 – Partners lead up a Double toward the Opposite couple and fall back a Double. That again.

B2 – The same with your Partner.

Verse II.

A1&2 – Side right with your Partner. Side left with your Opposite.

B1 – Men change places. Women change places. All take hands and go halfway round to your places.

B2 – Women change places. Men change places. All go halfway round again.

Verse III.

A1&2 – Arm right with Partner.  Arm left with Opposite.

B1 – Men put back your Contrary a Double, then fall back a Double to the right on the other side. Men cast off to the right, the Women following, going around until you come to the same place again.

B2 – Men put back your Contrary a Double, falling back onto your own side. Men cast off to the left, the Women following, until you come to your original places again.
