Give and Take:

The primary version is the culmination of Ted's updates after
Zesty Contras was published. Ted had strong opinions about
traditional values and held tightly to them. Thus he was quite
emphatic: the way he did the dance was as given above.
However, above all, Ted was the most supportive man I have
known. His encouragement of me as a caller and
choreographer was unbounded, even to the extent of
supporting my programming the non-traditional version of
his dance. We miss Ted, badly.

Note the similarity to Maliza's Magical Mystery Motion. The chain is to the diagonal left here, so at the end of B1 you must face a new set of four to find your partner.
