Starting formation - square of 8 dancers. All four ladies step to the center and join their right palms together to form a star shape if seen from above. If a hand in the star is holding a BFT, the BFT moves to the OPPOSITE lady. The ladies walk forward (to the left, in a clockwise direction) and turn the star halfway around to their opposite men. All meet up with their new partners, take courtesy turn handhold, courtesy turn to face the center of the set.
