Form a single circle with pairs of students. All the students join hands and perform the first two verses as the words suggest - circle right, then circle left. On verse 3, all students take four small steps into the center of the circle and then four steps back. Repeat. On verse 4, the students drop hands and turn to face their partner. Swing with right elbows for four counts, and left for four. Repeat. On verse five, partners do-si-do twice. On verse six, partners join hands in “skating” position and promenade around the circle.
