Note: This figure would normally be followed by a closed position movement such as the second half of a Closed Turning Basic; it may, however, be followed with a promenade figure by underturning so that steps 7 and 8 face DW as man and DC as lady. Steps 1-4 may also be danced as a promenade basic ended with a turn to the right. Finallly, step 5 may be used at a corner and underturned to move down a new LOD.
