Animation of "ladies chain half-way 'round," iterated twice.
The second iteration "chains the ladies back again," returning them to their original positions.
|All four women step into the center of the square, putting all their right hands together.|
Pivoting around the point where their hands join, they rotate clockwise until they are half-way across the square.
Each woman touches left hands with the man in front of her and the man performs a "courtesy turn" (see figure 3a).
Dancers are back in the starting square formation, but women have all rotated four positions around the square.
