Calling Notes:

In the middle, circle and star promenade direction are fuzzy. As long as people have squared the set at the end of the B1, so all are progressing down a contra line.

For "lead to the right" -- in the square, everyone with partner promenades counterclockwise 1/4 and faces out. In contras, progress to next, which means women pivot, gating their partner into progressed positions.
