Description

Recorded by Bob Dalsemer, January 5, 1974 at the Maryland Line Fire Hall, Maryland Line, MD.
Caller: Donald "Jake" Jacoby
Band: The Saw Mill Boys

This visiting couple square has a quick progression, whereby the next couple starts its round when the previous couple is visiting its last couple. There is no middle break. In the figure, the two gents swing their opposites and then "jitterbug" with them, i.e. with gent's left hand holding his opposite's right hand, they step apart and the gent twirls the lady counterclockwise and repeat until the caller calls a partner swing. Variations of this standard jitterbug move are possible.
