the 'single file promenade clockwise' can be drawing your neighbor/partner across the set with eye contact gravity
A1  4  neighbors gyre ½

4  single file promenade clockwise 1/2 (facing neighbor) [1]
 
8  neighbors swing
 
A2  8  long lines forward & back

8  ladles allemande right 1½ [2]

4  single file promenade clockwise 1/2 (facing partner) [3]
 
8  partners swing
 
B2  8  ladles chain

8  star left 4 places ⁋

Chris Page notes:
[1] While looking at your neighbor. Gentlespoons backing up across the set (carefully), ladles follow them to the other side.
[2] A little different from the normal ladle's allemande, as here dancers don't adjust. Gentlespoons should stay put, and stay on the slight diagonal, rather than adjusting to be across from each other. Ladles allemande right 1 & 1/2, then ease out to the sidelines, having traded places, and now facing their partner on the side of the set.
[3] While looking at your partner. Ladles backing up across the set (carefully), gentlespoons follow them to the other side.
An auction dance written for Heather Visscher. She really liked the A2 move from "A Rare Bird" by Bob Isaacs.

high energy closer, Petronellas in B1
introduces moves: promenade, petronella
formation: Becket ccw
A1  8  gentlespoons allemande left 1½

8  neighbors swing

8  ladles chain
 
B1  8  balance & petronella and turn to face the next ⁋

8  balance & petronella
 
B2  16  partners balance & swing

"The motion in B1 does seem magical – while the ladles Petronella over and back across the set, the gentlespoons do consecutive Petronellas along the side, in effect progressing behind his partner’s back."
