This dance starts with three couples facing up the hall, one after the oter.
- Holding customary hands with partners, do a double forward, then a double back again. Turn to face partners and do a set and turn left. Repeat, but this time set and turn right.
- Men do a hey to the right, not touching hands, ladies the same to the left.
- Couples to sidings left with each other, then set and turn left. Repeat to the right.
- Top couple face down the hall, the other couples face up, all taking a hand with their partner. The top couple goes between the second couple and around the third, still holding hands. As each couple get to the top or bottom of the line they drop hands, face the other way, take hands again and move between the approaching couple. Repeat until back into original positions.
- Couples to armings left with each other, then set and turn left. Repeat to the right.
- As the first chorus, except that the first couple cross at the beginning to hey with the opposite line, and cross again when they reach the bottom.
