+ Colonnade: ones (join right hands to) make an arch and hold that arch for the entire figure. Ladles trade by right shoulders with ladle two going under the arch. Gentlespoons trade by right shoulders with gentlespoon two going under the arch. [stop here for 1/2 colonnade] Ladles trade by right, gentlespoons trade by right. Each trade has 4 beats of music, so there's no need to rush.
