First Man Lady Second Man Measures Notes
Start holding hands, no specified formation (in a line, we think).

vt p p p p vt 2 Lady goes away from men.
s s s s s s 3 In these two measures, lady turns, goes between men,
p p p p p p p p p p p p 4 all turn to face and end in triangle
v v v no time
c c c c c c 5
R R R 6
P P P 7 Done inanzi in traverso (i.e. diagonally).
P P P P P P P P P 10 Starts with the right foot, goes backwards or to the rear, brings all back "whence they departed" (but which place?).
t t t P t t t P t t t P 9-10 Do these in a treccia, starting with lady giving right hand to man on her right; men end up exchanged; all end in triangle.
t t t P t t t P t t t P 11-2 Again in a treccia, starting with lady giving (left?) to man currently on her right; men end up exchanged back; all end in triangle.

25-28 All this is just a half-hay—men exchange places, all end in a triangle.
R R 29 (Lady "leaves and goes [to the man on her right]". The text seems implies that she actually covers ground, but specifies no steps. We have found that following Caroso's instructions for the lady's riverenza (i.e. having her not join in until count 3) allows her time to do ss towards the appropriate man as he begins the riverenza.) Touch hands.
R R 30 (Lady "leaves" as above.) Touch hands.
vt p p p p vt 31 Lady returns to line with men.
R R R 32 End in a line (which is why we think it starts in a line).
