Notes:
The dance is designed so that you interact mainly with your second and fourth neighbours, hence the name.

The timing on the "Into the Middle & Back" is: 1, 2, 3, Stamp, 1, 2. Roll Away.

Rory O'More means spin or slide to the side, changing places nose to nose with your partner, but finish facing in your original direction. When you spin you spin in the direction you are going.
