From two facing columns of 3 at the head positions with one lone dancer on each side of the set facing in:
1. The two columns of 3 will do a regular Dixie Chain, alternating pulling by hands (right, left, right, left).
The following commands are then normally given:
2. “First dancer left around 1”: ie. Each lead dancer will turn to the left, walk past the lone dancer there, and face in to the center beside him.)
3. “Next dancer turn back”: ie. Each second dancer will turn back at outside of square to face in.
4. “Next dancer chain 3/4”: ie. Last two dancers in the dixie chain, instead of pulling by, will chain 3/4 out to the original lone people on each side of the set for a courtesy turn.
Ends in lines of three facing in at the sides and a lonesome dancer at the heads.
