Progression takes place in A2 when dancers cross trails through. During the walkthrough, I would coach the men to take a step forward (in their direction of progression) when the ladies are allemanding by the right in B1; this should help the flow of this dance.
Written 5/11/17 after Allison, dancing in California to Andy Shore, reported getting to dance a John Coffman dance far from home.
