Designate ones and twos. (the couples on the [caller's] right side of the line, the couples that will progress downward, are ones.) (Or, before the box circulate, designate twos above & ones below)
Give the twos a chance to practice arching the colonnade during the walkthrough.
A1  8  long lines forward & back

2  gentlespoons pull by left
 
6  neighbors allemande right ¾ & form long wavy lines (neighbor by right, gentlespoons facing in)

introduces moves: revolving door, square through, circle, petronella
formation: four face four
Most of the dance is with your neighbors, except the half hey figure, which is with your traveling buddies ("shadows" in B1).
A1  8  revolving door  ladles take right hands and drop off partners on other side

8  neighbors swing
 
A2  8  gentlespoons allemande left 1½

8  partners swing
 
B1  8  square through two  neighbors balance & pull by right, then partners pull by left

8  shadows start a half hey  lefts on ends, rights in center, pass your partner, and join hands with your neighbors
 
B2  8  circle right 3 places

8  balance & petronella, face new neighbors ⁋

As in Dutch Crossing, end the half hey right after passing by your partner. For the circle, gentlespoons are already moving in that direction, so they get to lead the circle to the /right/.
