Bradley Smith Notes: The first time through the dance, the Ladies Allemande Left in A1 is with the couple that you start the dance with. Every time after that, the Ladies have to look to the right to find the next Lady to Allemande. It's a very simple progression that just requires reminding the Ladies to look for the next Lady in line after the Forward and Back

Bradley Smith Notes:
The first time through the dance, the gents do-si-do in A1 is with the couple that you start the dance with. Every time after that, the gents have to look to the left to find the next gent to do-si-do. It's a very simple progression that just requires reminding Gents that they must look to the left every time through the dance after the first to find the next Gent to Do-si-do.
