**The Progression of this dance is technically the first thing to happen in this secretly-becket dance. I prefer to teach the dance as though it were improper, and will have dancers note their next neighbor before I even begin the walkthrough. As the dance ends with dancers on the side with their partners, I have all look to the Right Diaonal for the Next Neighbor they'd already identified. Ladies stay put and "lure" the Gents to their side of the set, effectively beginning that initial gypsy from across the set, and the dance begins again.
