Directions:

A11-8 1st Man & 2nd couple hey for 3 across set *
[start L-shoulder with 2nd Woman]
 
A21-8 1st Woman and 2nd couple, hey for 3 across set *
[start R-shoulder with 2nd Man]
 
B11-2 Ones, with inside hands joined, lead down the middle
WHILE Twos set in place
3-4 Ones, changing hands, fall back down the middle
WHILE Twos sidestep up into 1st place
5-6 Ones lead up the middle WHILE Twos set in place
7-8 Ones cloverleaf turn single into 2nd place**
[All face partner]
 
B21-8 Whole poussette counterclockwise
(1st Man forward)
 

* At the end of each hey for 3, while the Twos are completing
the hey, M1 and W1 have the option of turning single down.
(M1 at the end of his hey faces down and turns single R;
W1 faces down and turns single L.) This works particularly well
for the 1st Woman, who can then flow directly into leading
down the set with her partner.

** Twos may also cloverleaf turn single up in 1st place.
