Elizabeth

by Colin Hume, duple proper longways

   A        1's set to each other, then 2 hand turn halfway (1-4)
          neighbors set, then 2 hand turn halfway (5-8) 
   B        partners back to back (1-4)
          circle left halfway, balance the circle, 
          fall back with neighbor (5-8) 
   C        men lead ladies into an open ladies chain; 
          men cast left while ladies turn by right 
          halfway, meet partners by left and turn once around (1-4)
          repeat to finish chain (5-8) 
   D        1's pass through by right and cast down, 
          2's start 1/2 figure 8 above as soon as 1's are clear (1-4)
          1's do 1/2 figure 8 above while 2's meet in the 
          center and lead up (5-8) 
   The tune is a waltz so each bar has 3 beats. 
   We like to do it with smooth waltz steps.
