QT: Improper

A1: (8)  Long Lines Forward & Back
    (8)  Circle Left 3/4
A2: (8)  Gypsy Partner on the side 1x
    (8)  Circle Left 3/4 {1}
B1: (12) Gent #1 leads Lady #1 by the hand in a complete orbit CW around 
  the Twos
    (4)  {Face same neighbors} Pass Through Up or Down by the right {2}
B2: (8)  Ones 2-hand turn 1x {3}
    (8)  Ones pass by right and walk down the outside while twos cross, 
      moving up the center.

NotesOther: This dance was written for Kate Power to call a wedding.  It 
  was designed as an easy dance that flows well at a moderate tempo and 
  requires only minimal knowledge of contra-jargon or swing-mechanics for 
  its enjoyment.  This dance is ideal for short lines.

If you have more than a few couples in the line, the dance can be changed 
  to a four part alternating dance.  Every other time, the twos lead 
  around the ones in B1, etc.

The choreographer's advice is as follows: "The Bride and Groom will 
  notice that they will, at some point, REACH THE END OF THE LINE, after 
  which they will be reduced to acting as posts while the young-uns dance 
  rings around them.  So the choreographer's advice is to ENJOY EACH 
  OTHER WHILE YOU CAN."

CallingNotes: {1} After the second circle left 3/4, the ones should be 
  below the twos.  {2} After lady two passes her neighbor by the right, 
  she will be left with her back to her partner.  Lady #1 must correct 
  this with a clockwise spin (over her right shoulder) half way around.  
  This extra spin will add greatly to Lady #1's enjoyment of the dance.  
  {3} Ones end the two-hand turn facing across.  Then they can give each 
  other a little tug to start the cross-and-down-the-outside move.

I'm not 100% sure of the timing of the orbit/pass through sequence.  It 
  may be that the orbit takes a bit longer than 12 beats and the pass 
  through goes a bit more quickly, or even extends into B2.  Dancing it 
  with three ghosts, I always seemed to have about 1 beat of music left 
  to collect myself before the LLFB that begins the dance.

If the twos fail to cross as they move up the center, it won't matter.
