Repeat entire sequence once: on the third repetition, man stops on step 7 (the fan following the open right turn,) and brings his feet together, allowing the lady to dance one complete free turn to her Right (QQS,) to end on her left foot in a right-to- right handhold, her right foot taps behind left in a curtsey.

Note on footwork for figure 1: For both partners, the footwork for the Lunge (S) should be Heel; construction and footwork of the apart turn itself consists of a pivot (Q-THT,) followed by a twinkle action danced with three Quicks; the footwork for this and all twinkle actions danced from forward movements should be HT-T-TH. The moving foot should brush the standing foot on the T step.
