|7-8||First couple half turn with left hand lady finishing facing down near the mens side and man facing up beside her.|
|9-16||Second, first and fourth couples dance right shoulder reels up and down the set, first couple finish facing out towards third couple, first lady facing third man.|
|17-24||First and third couples dance a reel of four across, third couple finish in second place, first couple facing in the middle|
|25-30||First couple do a pivot turn moving down the set finishing in fourth place on own sides, third and fourth couple move up on bars 29-30|

Note: the reels in bars 9-16 are both right shoulder reels but are not parallel reels being like those following set to corners as for example in "The Montgomeries' Rant".
