The back-to-back moves in parts A1 and A2 are, for this dance, traditionally performed so that the dancing couple pass R shoulders forward, then retire until they have just passed their left shoulders (and could look each other in the eye), then they both turn single R to place. Will practise, this can be very stylish.
