Gentlespoons do-si-do and return to where they started the do-si-do, but facing out; WHILE ladles exchange places by continuing to walk in the direction they are facing (clockwise) 1/2 around the do-si-doing gentlespoons.

*** Historical Notes
Dancers at 1999 Breaking Up Thanksgiving outside Chicago applauded this then unnamed dance's debut. Hence the name.
