A1: (8)  Long Lines Forward & Back
    (8)  Circle Left 3/4
A2: (8)  Ladies do a Gents Chain {1} {2}
    (8)  Partner Swing
B1: (8)  Men Allemande Left 1.5
    (8)  Neighbor Swing
B2: (8)  Ladies Chain {to Partner}
    (8)  Promenade Across, looping CCW around the oval {3}

CallingNotes: {1} Ladies do a Gents Chain - Ladies allemande left 1/2 
  while the men point their LEFT shoulders across.  Join inside hands 
  with partner and wheel as couples CW 3/4 (men backing).  {2} Ladies 
  need to make a sharp turn to go into the chain.  Gents should help them 
  into it by wheeling a as couple with their neighbor CW 1/4.  This will 
  not only help the ladies into the chain, but it will correctly position 
  the men to receive their partners for the courtesy turn.  {3} This is 
  equivalent to promenade across + face in + shift right along the line.

NotesOther: The courtesy turn in "Ladies do a Gents Chain" is the reverse 
  of the courtesy turn in a regular ladies chain.  While this dance has a 
  beautiful flow, and the transition from courtesy turn to swing in A2 is 
  indeed thrilling, teaching the unusual figure would be a real bear.
