Rows begin facing each other with dancers standing in the space between 2 dancers in the opposite rowith in the first 4 counts, dancers walk forward and clap hands with both dancers moving towards them. In the second set of 8 counts, if dancers are close enough, they can "slap" each others boots by touching them together. The rest of the dance is the same.
