3&4MAN: Triple left-right-left turning ½ turn to face lady. End with feet apart so she can step between feet

Stay in closed position while you rotate right (open the door) and let go of closed position with the right arm back to a single hand hold man's left to lady's right on count 6
Note for mixer:
On count 7&8 the man can do a vine step that travels to his left so that he can pick up the next lady in a circle formation. If the mixer is not done, just don't move on the triple

REPEAT

BIG PARTNER CHANGE
Man does the last triple on 7&8 still moving but turns a quarter turn left. Then he will be on the inside of the circle. Lady does the last triple on 7&8 but turns a quarter turn left. Then she will be on the outside of the circle

1-2MAN: Move forward with left step, right step together

 LADY: Move forward with right step, left step together
3-4MAN: Left step forward, right knee up
 LADY: Right step forward, left knee up
5-6MAN: Right step forward, left together
 LADY: Left step forward, right together
7-8MAN: Right forward, left knee up
 LADY: Left forward, right knee up
9-16BOTH: Repeat 1-8
Because you will have moved one partner up on the last pattern of the dance, when you start the Big Partner Change you will move up one partner again. Clap man's right and lady's right hand to the next partner as you pass on 4, then again on 8, then again on 12, then on 16 catch man's left (lady's right) to start the pattern again
