 +Part I, A1
 +At the end of bar 4, the bottom two couples turn towards partners and face down to start 
 +the cast and lead in bar 5.
 +Part I, B1 and B2
 +As the 1st and 3rd couples (2nd and 4th couples in B2) meet, the couple in second place 
 +(third place in B2) must step back out of the way.
 +Part III
 +In this quiet dance, the last figure, in Part III, is known as "the burst"​!
 +A calm dance more about control and timing than anything else. Fairly simple and easy 
 +to learn, it provides dancers the opportunity to dance precisely to the music. T
 +he signature is in the third part, where everyone leads away from the set, and 
 +returns just in time to start the circle. The timeless tune is known to folk music 
 +lovers everywhere.
