36 bars of 2/4
Music: Molecular Structure by David Smukler

Calls refer to actives and positions (top, middle, bottom) rather than numbers that persist no matter where the person is. The following is the original incarnation of the dance. There is an officially sanctioned variation below.
 A1 Active couple (i.e., top couple) cross and go below (middle couple lead up after ones cross).
Two-hand turns: actives (in the middle) two-hand turn neighbors at bottom while partners turn at the top.
 A2 All back-to-back partners
Two-hand turns: actives (in the middle) turn other neighbors (i.e., neighbors above); partners turn at the foot.
End the turn facing this person and take note of him or her.
 B1 Six changes of a circular hey, beginning by the right shoulder with the person you just turned and ending in the same place.
 B2 Circle left six hands round all the way.
 B2.5 (Old) actives cross and go below (bottom couple lead up).

Notes

Variation
B2: Quick gypsy (four steps) with the last person you turned. Then circle six hands round all the way. (Thanks to David Smukler for this suggestion.)
