By: Victor Skowronski, updated 2014
Music: Provencal Carol (traditional)
Formation: Longways duple proper

A 1-4 Up a double and back (end facing partner)
5-8 Right and left (start partner)
9-12 Down a double and back (end facing partner)
13-16 Right and left (start partner)
B 1-4 Star right

9-10 1st corners, followed by their partners, lead out (on an angle towards progressed place, 1st corners turning to face partner at end)
11-12 (take 2 hands with partner) 2nd corners pull their partner into progressed place

NOTES: 1 Original dance was 2012. This revised version is January 3, 2014
2 The track of the figure in B9-12 is that of a pousette but in B9-10 the 1st corner leads out instead of backing out, turning at the end to face their partner.

I don't understand the progression Michael!
Is this a half-pousette?

I am not familiar with this dance but my interpretation would probably be to follow the track of a draw pousette in B9-12. It differs from a draw pousette in that the leader moves forward with their partner following for the 1st two bars and they only face and push/pull in the last 2 bars. You would end up improper and then become proper by turning 1.5 in B13-16. I am writing to Victor for clarificatiuon.

Clarification from Victor Skowronski:

The figure is similar to a pousette, but not a draw pousette. The first man and second woman lead straight out out followed by their partners. They will then turn to face their partners. At this time, they are
facing in and their partners (first woman and second man) are facing out. The first woman and second man will then draw their partners into progressed place, where they are proper.
