Sticking:

There are two patterns for the sticking, each of which is used by two dancers and which occur simultaneously:

  • (1st Corners): H-L-H-L / H-L / H-H
  • (2nd Corners): L-H-L-H / H-L / H-H

In the first pattern:

  • The 1st Corners (1 and 4) begin by clashing diagonally with each other: High, Low, High, Low.
  • Then they turn to face the dancers who is Up/Down set from them (for 1, that’s 3; for 4, that’s 2) and clash High, Low.
  • Finally, they turn to the dancer who is Across from them (for 1, that’s 2, for 4, that’s 3) and clash High, High.

In the second pattern:

  • The 2nd Corners (2 and 3) begin by clashing diagonally with each other: Low,¬†High, Low, High.
  • Then they turn to face the dancers who is Up/Down set from them (for 2, that’s 4; for 3, that’s 1) and clash High, Low.
  • Finally, they turn to the dancer who is Across from them (for 2, that’s 1, for 3, that’s 4) and clash High, High.

Notes:

  • Since there are no Middle dancers, the Half Heys must be done short.
  • FINISH: Final Half Hey at the end of the dance ends with a Caper Out.
