NOTE: This is one of the few dances from Playford that actually refer to “back-to-back” in two different ways, clarifying the question of turning b2b vs. going around each other b2b. While going around each other is the normal “back-to-back,” this dance actually uses both. Some groups go around each other both times, first facing out, then facing in, but this does not accurately reflect the original instructions.
