Teaser: Teach Half Figure Eight

QT: Improper

A1: (8)  Ones Half Figure Eight Below {1}
    (8)  Twos Half Figure Eight Above {2}
A2: (8)  Long Lines Forward & Back
    (8)  {Same} Neighbor Swing
B1: (16) Give & Take (Men Take) Partner Swing {3!}
B2: (8)  Circle Left 3/4
    (8)  Balance-the-Ring + California Twirl

CallingNotes: A good "cool-down" dance.  {1} Introduce Ones & Twos.  
  Summarize: Pair of 1/2 Figure Eights.  A 1/2 Eight will cause the 
  couple doing it to trade places with their partners.  With lady in the 
  lead, Ones cross down through the TWOS, separate and come back up the 
  outside.  All the men should now be in one line.  {2} TWOS - face 
  band.  TWOS, with lady in lead, cross UP through the Ones, separate and 
  come back DOWN the outside -> Everyone next to neighbor.  {3} GaT tends 
  to leave couples askew - look for same neighbors a bit on right 
  diagonal.
