Notes: A1 Ladies don’t often roll the gents away, so a short teaching moment is helpful — good weight, and pull into the ladies chain.  Also, from the LL the ladies need to roll their NEW neighbor gent.  Ladies may want to roll their old neighbors.  “Ladies right-hand roll” was a successful call.
A2 The courtesy turn for the promenade is best without an under-arm twirl for the roll-away.
