A1: (8)  {Ones between Twos} Mirror Allemande 1.5
    (8)  {Twos lead} Double Cross {1}
A2: (8)  {Twos between Ones} Mirror Allemande 1.5
    (8)  {Ones lead} Double Cross {-> All Home}
B1: (8)  Ones Down the Center + Turn Alone
    (8)  Return + Hand Cast {2}
B2: (16) Ones Gypsy & Swing

CallingNotesPre: {1} Double Cross = Half of a "Double Figure Eight":

    (4)  Twos cross as they move down the center WHILE Ones move up the 
      outside
    (4)  Ones cross as they move down the center WHILE Twos move up the 
      outside

CallingNotes: The net result of the "Double Cross" is that everyone 
  trades places with their partners.  The Twos will walk the same path as 
  for a Half Figure Eight.  In A2, the figure repeats, with the Ones & 
  Twos trading roles.  {2} Flirty moment here - the Ones give each other 
  an agonized glance of desperate longing as the gleeful Twos drag them 
  apart.  But they are soon reunited.

I gave it some thought for gender free teaching - you could announce 
  before the instructions that the left-hand person in the top couple 
  (nominally Gent #1) is standing in a magic spot.  Later in the dance, 
  people standing in the magic spot (but NOT the person currently 
  standing there) will have a leading role to play.
