Right hands joined over lady's shoulder (man's arm behind her back) and left hand joined in front, walk forward for four steps, starting on the right foot.


Still moving in the same direction, and without letting go, pivot on the spot (so left hand is behind lady and right hand is in front) and take four steps backwards.



Repeat in the opposite direction.


Drop left hands, raise right hands above lady's head whilst she turns underneath.



Join hands in a ballroom hold and polka round the room.
