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.
