BackSquares from Northern Junket



By Volume:

Alphabetically:

Ralph PageRalph Page published 165 issues of the magazine “Northern Junket” for 35 years, from 1949 to 1984.

You can see scans of these at scholars.unh.edu/northern_junket and scholars.unh.edu/northern_junket/index.2.html

There is also an index to all issues of Northern Junket at scholars.unh.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1165&context=northern_junket     Archived here

I'm starting to extract the squares and publish them here.  It seems there are over 230 of them, so I may not live to finish the job!  I'm working from the table at the bottom of this page, which will gradually be emptied.  I'm giving the original wording followed in some cases by my comments and the way I would write it out.  No doubt I'll make some mistakes, so please Contact me if you disagree with anything here — I haven't called most of these squares!  I'm also planning to give music links for all the dances which have a specified non-copyright tune — just click the treble clef icon next to the dance title.  These are traditional tunes so I'm not guaranteeing that they're exactly the versions that Ralph Page used (except for those where he actually gave the musical notation), but they're here and they're chorded — you can see them, hear them and print them out.

While working on Volume 2 I discovered a scanned text version of 2.3 which greatly reduced my typing, though the scanning software inevitably made lots of mistakes.

In fact many issues have been stored on the Internet Archive — see: archive.org/search.php?query=northern+junket&sort=-date&page=4 which gives them in reverse date order (roughly) — and you can read the facsimiles or scroll down and click “Full text” to download the scanned text.  I'm hoping they're all there — I haven't found out yet!  They are quicker to display than the copies on the UNH website.  I'm adding “Archived here” links as I go through them.

Read more about Ralph Page on my “What is a Dancing Master?” page.  And for more about traditional squares, see squaredancehistory.org

Some issues give month and year; others just give year.  I'm trusting the dates given in the Index.

When I announced the creation of this page on the Traditional Dance Callers' List, Tony Parkes said:

Sounds like a monumental task, Colin.  More power to you — we need all the easily accessible sources of good squares that we can put in place.

and Amy Cann said:

How neat!  I have a few early copies I picked up as spares at Ralph Page weekend and they make for fascinating reading.

Also, I had to explain to a twenty-something the other day why they were “purple”, which was fun.

They totally didn't believe me about sniffing fresh mimeographs.

Suggested music: Buffalo Gals
Use any introduction you wish, then -

Head lady lead up to the right
Turn that gent by the right hand around
Back to your partner and left hand around
Lady in the center and seven hands around
Lady comes out with a corner swing
Do the same all round the ring
Leave her alone and swing your own
First gent out to the lady on the right
Turn that lady by the right hand around
Back to your own and the left hand around
Swing her in the center and six hands around
Break that ring and shake 'er down
Do si do with your corners all
Do the same with your own little doll
Allemande left with your corners all
And swing your partners around the hall

Next lady and gent do the same changes, then

Every gentleman lead to the right
Swing that lady with all your might
Now that lady across from you, you swing her and she'll swing you
Now swing that lady on your left, swing her round and round to the west
Now swing your own that you swing best
All promenade around the ring

Next two couples do the same changes in turn then repeat the chorus figure for an ending

The calls would seem to explain themselves, but there may be some question about the “shake 'er down” business.  It takes but six bars of music to go six hands around the couple swinging in the center; the call is given on the seventh and eighth bars of the strain, as the dancers are straightening themselves out from the six hands around.  Everybody faces partner, and on the last measure all do clog steps in place.

Suggested music: Wi' a Hundred Pipers an' a', an a'
Any introduction you wish, then
Head couple swing inside the ring,
Head lady goes right, head gent goes left,
And make two three hand stars with side couples
(1st lady & 2nd couple join right hands and circle once around; 1st gent & 4th couple join left hands and circle once around)
The other hand back the way you are,
Meet in the center and go on to the next
And make a four hand right hand cross
Then allemande left your corners all
Grand right and left a half way round
Promenade her when you meet, you promenade her home.
Other couples do same figures in turn.

Before starting the call, it helps to have every one take a good look at their corners, for the allemande left is done with your original corners.  There are always a few lost souls who can gaze at their corners till doomsday and not recognise them when the time comes to allemande left.  But don't get discouraged.  'Twas ever thus.
Every caller will relate to that last paragraph!  When Ralph refers to the head couple he means the first couple.  I haven't tried this version, but it seems awkward for the first man to go from a right-hand star with the fours to a right-hand star with the threes, so here's a variant I learnt from Bernard Chalk.

A1:Ones lead across, split the ring, separate, round the outside back home.
A2:Ones cross over: right-hand star with the opposite side couple.  Cross back: left-hand star with the other side couple.
B1:Ones right-hand star with the threes.  All allemande left corner.
B2:Do-si-do partner.  Swing.

If you want to make it more challenging, you can do:

Break, Figure for Ones, Twos, Break, Figure for Threes, Fours, Break, Figure for Heads, Figure for Sides, Break.

Tony Parkes said:

I just looked at your transcription and Ralph's original notes on Three Hand Star. I think Ralph may have been sleep-deprived when he typed that one out. I've danced it and called it in several versions, and both of the three-hand stars at the beginning were always with right hands, then back with the left.

Any introduction you want provided you use the tune once through; thirty-two measures.  Then:

The head two ladies forward and back
Forward again and the two girls swing
Six hands around them in a great big ring
Break that ring and swing your own, everybody swing
Allemande left your corners
A right hand round your own
You do si do your corners
And do si do your own
You've got time to swing your own alone
Swing her once or twice

Do the same changes for the two side girls also the two head men, and the two side men

This is how I would fit it into 32 bars.

A1:Head ladies forward and back.  Head ladies swing in the middle and immediately the other six start to circle left around them.
A2:Finish the circle left.  All swing partner.
B1:Allemande left corner, allemande right partner, do-si-do corner.
B2:Do-si-do partner.  Swing.

Crooked Stovepipe is in my book (which should be out in about 2 weeks), with two call charts and a few miscellaneous comments.

Adirondack version
Contributed by “Duke” Miller, Gloversville, N.Y.

Introduction
Allow music to run 4 bars4
Bow to your partners one and all2
And to your corner la-a-a-ady.2
The Break
Allemande left the left hand girl
Touch right hands with your partner
Allemande left that right hand girl8
Come back and promenade your own
    (promenade takes 8 more bars)8
The Figure
First old couple lead to the right2
And balance there so kindly2
Walk right through and balance again2
And swing the one behind you2
      Long swing8
Take that new girl to the next
And balance etc. etc.8
      Long swing8
 
Note — at this point each man should be home with a new girl.      
Now insert the complete break including the promenade.
Second couple now does the figure and the break
and as the promenade starts, immediately call:
 
Spin her back and walk the next
She walks with the man behind her
Spin her back and walk the next
She walks with the man behind her16
Spin her back and walk the nextor
She walks with the man behind her24
Spin her back you have your ownif not
So promenade that lady homehome in position
Third couple same as the first,
Fourth couple same as the second.
 
Although description is long, the dance is fast, taking about six minutes to do the whole dance.

The call “spin her back” etc. should be done from New England promenade position as follows:

Raise left hands high, as left feet hit the floor the man exerts a sharp pull with his right hand on girl's waist.  This causes the girl to spin once in place.  At the same time the man keeps moving ahead and the next girl ahead of him should drop onto his right arm in promenade position.

“Walk through and balance again” - girls go thru on inside, and this balance is back to back with that couple.  Thus, when they balance, the first man and second lady are back to back; likewise first lady and second gent are back to back.
For those more familiar with a skaters' hold, New England promenade position is where the man's right hand is on the woman's right hand on her waist, as in a courtesy turn at the end of a ladies chain.

21st century contra dancers will want to take hands with someone and balance forward and back, but that's not what they did in 1949.  In fact in the May 1955 issue of Northern Junket, Dr. Ralph A. Piper wrote an article entitled “50 variations of the balance”, and his first variation is: Step on the right foot, point the toe of the left foot in front of right; repeat to the left“ which is a setting step as you might find in English or Scottish dances.  He points out that: ”The term balance superseded the term “setting” to partners or corners.  So the first time you're setting to your opposite, then pass through right shoulder, and the second setting is to nobody: Miller makes that very clear.

Repeat first 8 measures of music.  Do NOT repeat the second eight measures.  This is a 24 measure call.

Introduction
Honor to your partner, the one you love the best
Honor to your corner, the one who's from the West.
Swing your partners one and all, the handsomest girl in the hall.
Promenade your partner, keep a smile upon your face,
While you wait for the wagon, walk around to place.

The Dance:
The head two step inside the ring (1st couple)
Balance there and swing.
The lady steps out to the right
The gent goes to the left.
Go between the two side couples,
Join hands and forward six,
Six fall back on the same old track,
And the head two in again.
They balance in the middle,
Then swing around once more,
Swing her if you love
Up off the old pine floor.
Then balance to the opposite two,
Be careful what you do,
You right and left right over
And you right and left right home.
When you're in your places,
You balance all and swing,
Take the ladies with you, and promenade the ring.
Promenade with your partners, never more to roam,
While you wait for the wagon
You can promenade her home.

[Virtually the same wording for the 2nd couple which I'm not going to type out again.]

(Other two couples do the same changes in turn The third couple going between the two side couples, and the fourth couple going between the head two couples.  Use any ending you wish.)

Ralph Page
Music: Any Irish jig.  I like to use “The Low Backed Car”

Use any introduction you wish, then:

Join your hands and forward all
Forward again for the good of the hall
The head two men take two girls home.
    (Their corners as well as their partners.  Thus the two head men have their partner at their right and their corner girl beside them at their left.  The two side men stand in place alone.)
Head gents turn partner with right hand around
Their corner lady with the left hand around
They put their arms round both girls' waists
And swing them both around in place.
Open it up in a circle of three
And three hands around you go
Pop the corner lady under
Everybody swing and don't you blunder
And all promenade around the ring.

The figure is repeated for the side gents.  It may also be done for but one man at a time.  It all depends on how the caller is feeling or how much time he has for the figure.

In the swing two ladies figure, it is a lot safer if the two girls join their free hands.  The figure should be done clockwise, and for goodness' sake men, hold on tight.
Tony Parkes said:

Swing Two Ladies is also in my new book.  I hadn't looked at Ralph's notes in a long time; I had forgotten that he envisioned the key move as a line of three going round, with or without the ladies' hands joined.  Ted Sannella and I always taught it as a basket of three.

“Duke” Miller is Athletic Director of the high school in Gloversville, Hew York.  This is one of many square dance calls he has collected from that vicinity and northern York state.  He tells us that he never heard but one elderly man use this call as given here.  Duke was kind enough to take us out to dinner one night last summer and over our second cup of coffee sang this dance for its.

Duke is doing a grand job with his own high school  group, and various PTA meetings around his section of the state.  Sometime we hope to needle him into contributing an article about his work out there in New York state.

The Dance
Introduction
Join your hands and all around,
Eight hands once around,
Guess you've got the rhrumatiz,
Don't believe you'll ever get round.
Break and swing your partners all,
Exactly as I say,
Swing your ladies everyone
Before they run away.
Figure
The first couple promenade
The outside of the ring,
Take your steps in double time,
You haven't time to sing.
Balance corners round the hall,
You balance one and all,
Swing your partners round and round,
Swing her to the wall,
Right arm to your partner, boys,
And grand allemande,
Reel your own girl once around,
And pass on to the next.
Meet that girl with a left arm whirl,
Then pass on to the next,
Give that girl your good right arm,
And reel just once around.
Now the next one by the left,
By the left arm reel,
Here's your own ahead of you,
Reel her by the right,
Pass right by, say good-bye,
See you tomorrow night.
Reel the ladies all around,
But don't you hug 'em tight,
First the right and then the left,
You allemande right on,
What'll we do for pork and beans
When Joe Clark's dead and gone?
Reel, reel, everybody reel,
Until you all get home.
When you're home, stand in place
With a big smile on your face.
                *
Next two promenade around
The outside of the set,
You haven't time to say good-bye,
But do not sigh or fret.
Promenade everyone, promenade the hall,
Walk around with Old Joe Clark,
He ain't been here since fall.
All join hands and circle eight
Around Old Joe Clark's gate,
If you stop to spark the girls
You won't get home 'til late.
Swing your partners all around,
Swing 'em night and day,
Swing hard with Old Joe Clark,
He ain't got long to stay.
                *
Third couple promenade around the outside,
Don't know why she married you,
She's such a handsome bride.
Balance once to your corners all,
Balance all around, swing your partners everyone,
Swing 'em up and down,
All promenade with Old Joe Clark,
Promenade I say.
Don't marry a man with whiskers on
They're always in the way.
Promenade the other way, the other way around,
Walk along with Old Joe Clark
The other way down town.
                *
Last couple take a promenade
Around the outside,
hurry right along to place,
With your lady by your side.
All join hands and circle eight,
Until you all get straight.
When you're home you swing all out,
Swing your partner inside out.
Swing your honey and swing your beau,
Swing 'em fast, swing 'em slow.
Then step right back and make a bow
To your partners all.
                *
Ending
Right hand to your partners now,
And grand right and left,
Grand chain half the way,
And promenade back home.
Promenade Old Joe Clark, promenade I say,
Promenade with Old Joe Clark,
As you've done many a day.
Promenade around the hall
With your lady right beside yer,
Thank the fiddlers one and all,
And I'll take a glass of cider.

There it is friends, exactly the way we used to call it a few years ago.  Word for word.  The calls explain themselves.  The grand allemande is known in some sections of the country as the “once and a half”.  Call it what you've a mind to.  But keep reeling once around with everyone you meet completely round the set.
That was a lot to type — for Ralph and now for me!  It's interesting that towards the end he says “grand right and left” which is the American term, and follows it immediately with “grand chain” which is the term used in the quadrilles and still the term we use in England and Scotland today (2021).

The first couple out to the right
And balance with the two,
Join your hands and circle to the left
And then here's what you do.
You chassez by, address your opposite
Chassez back, address your own
Then right and left the way you are-
Ar-r-re, ar-r-re.
Right and left back to place
And the ladies grand chain.
All promenade your partners.

Other couples do the same changes in turn.

The Dance

First couple walk to their right, stopping in front of the second couple.  Both couples balance with each other, by taking two short steps toward each other and two short steps back.  They then join hands and go four hands around once.  Release hands.  The first couple should be about in the middle of the set, with their backs to fourth couple.  Couples 1 & 2 chassez by partners with four short walking steps, gents to their right, ladies to their left, ladies passing in front of partners.  The two men now bow to the opposite ladies (man 1 bows to 2nd lady, man 2 bows to 1st lady) who curtsey to them.  Repeat the figure in opposite direction, bow and curtsey to own partners.  Couples 1 & 2 do regular right and left figure, over and back.  Then all four ladies do grand chain: 1st & 3rd ladies join right hands, 2nd and 4th ladies do the same.  This makes a star.  In this position ladies walk to their own left half around the set to opposite man.  Ladies release their right hand star, give left hand to that opposite man who takes the lady's left in his left and turns her once around, counter clockwise as in regular ladies chain; ladies now step to center of the set, join right hands once more in a star and circle to own left half way round the set to own partner, release right hand star, give left hand to partner who turns them once around as in regular ladies chain.  All promenade partners once around the set.  The other couples do same figure in their turn.

This is the short way of doing the dance.  Originally, each couple visited every other couple in the set doing the same figure with all of them in turn.  This made a very long dance out of the first part of Honest John, and it was gradually shortened; first by omitting the promenade around the set, and then by having each couple do the figure with the couple on their right.  We saw this dance done this short way at the Vermont Country Dance Festival, Plainfield, eight or nine years ago,  The tune and calls are exactly as the group from West Newbury danced them.  The caller was Charles DuBois, now of Amherst, Mass.  Later, we obtained the same version from Mr. Brummer, Swiftwater, N.H.

Mr Brunner wrote that Honest John was always danced in his town, for the first dance after intermission.  And that all the dancers on the floor joined the caller in singing the figure “chassez by, address your opposite, chassez back, address your own.  Right and left the way you ar-re, ar-r-re, right and left back to place and all four ladies chain”.  Try it this way, you will get a big kick out of it and the dance will mean a lot more to you.

Honest John was originated by the Van Orman family who once lived in Newbury, Vermont.  It is known to be at least 75 years old and is probably nearer 100.  The Van Ormans were a large and very musical family, who came to eastern Vermont from New York State.  Many of the family are yet living in Vermont, and they are a musical family to this very date.
A beautifully clear and detailed description of the dance — would that John Playford had done the same!  This time the balance is specified as forward and back, so that may have been the way it was done in “Girl I Left Behind Me” — but again, no taking hands.  Notice that it's an open ladies chain, not a courtesy turn with an arm round the waist.  The dance is clearly descended from the 19th century quadrille — Mr Brummer dates it to probably around 1850.  If you don't know about quadrilles and think this sort of square is a purely American invention, you need to learn more about its background!  See for instance my page on Connections.

In earlier times the chassez would have been a sideways slip-step rather than a walk, known by the French title of chassé-croisé and used for instance in “La Russe”.

I've given the melody as Ralph Page notated it, except for one bar where I think he put three notes too low (a mistake I've made many times) and I've added chords.  It's strongly related to “Brighton Camp / The Girl I Left Behind Me” but with an extra section in the middle.

Tony Parkes says:

I agree with you about the three wrong notes in Ralph's score.  In addition, I think the quaver just before the last D7 chord should be a G, not an F#.

It does look as if an open left-hand turn is being described in the ladies' grand chain.  However, it says “as in regular ladies chain”; we'd have to know how that was done in that community to be sure.  I wonder how the right and left was done; there's no description.

I danced this to Dudley Laufman's calling in 1965 or 1966.  Dud called it just as it's given here except that he said “Everybody swing” instead of the ladies' grand chain.  Yes, he called for a 16-count swing.

I've now changed the note that Tony queried.  The tune is 40 bars with no repeats, and the words fit the tune, the second line with its slow notes for “You chassez by, address your opposite.  Chassez back, address your own”.

A:First couple out to the right to face second couple (4 steps); both couples balance forward and back.  Circle left.
B:Walk past partner, ladies in front; bow/curtsey to opposite.  Walk past partner, again ladies in front; bow/curtsey to partner.
C:Right and left through, and back, first couple finishing home.
D:All four ladies chain across and back (with an open left-hand turn).
E:Promenade.

The Dance

The first lady and third gent step to the center of set, join right hands and walk once around; releasing right hands they join their left hands and walk back the other way.  They keep hold of left hands, join right hands with partner and balance that way four in line.  This balance step is a short step forward and one short step back.  All swing partners.  Couples 1 & 3 do a regular ladies chain.  Same two couples promenade across the set, turning around in the opposites couples place and do a right and left home to place.

Then the second lady and fourth gent give right hands once around, etc.  Side two couples ladies chain, half promenade and half right and left to place.  Other couples do similar figures in turn.
This is also clearly derived from the Quadrille.  It's a mixture of figures 3 and 1 of The Plain Quadrille, with a swing and an ending added to make it American.  No connection with the previous dance except that I assume it was traditionally danced as a set with Part One.  I've set it as Ralph wrote it except that I'm sure he meant B rather than C in bar 24.  Tony Parkes says:

The names of the tunes are not given, but in a narrative account of a kitchen junket in another issue of NJ, Ralph identified the first tune as “I Can't Untie the Knot” (granted the “A” strain sounds a lot like “Boil Dem Cabbage Down”). The second tune is, of course, Old Zip Coon or Turkey in the Straw. No repeats of any of the strains.

Here's Ralph calling part 2. The ending uses just the two strains of Can't Untie.

That's so useful!  Now you can see exactly how the call fits the music, and the points where there's no call — how would you have known that from reading the magazine?  The tempo is123 beats per minute.

Figure:
A:First lady and third gent right-hand turn.  Back with a left-hand turn, keep hold and give right to partner forming a wave up and down.
B:Balance forward and back once; swing partner for 6 bars, finishing back in the square.
C:Head ladies chain across and back.
D:Heads half promenade (inside the set).  Right and left through to place.
Ending:
A:Allemande left corner, allemande right partner, do-si-do corner.
B:Promenade partner.

from Paul Hunt

Intro:
Allemande left, as you come down you
Swing your partners all around.
Allemande left with the corner again
And a grand right and left.
Hand over hand around the track,
Keep on going 'til you get back.
All the way boys and girls all the way.

Figure:
First lady go right and the gent to the left
Around the outside you go.
You do si do with the gal of your dreams
You do the do si do.
Take her in your arms and swing
Promenade back home again
Hurry hurry hurry hurry swing your corner girl.
Oh you swing that girl then leave her alone
Go right back and swing your own
Swing that girl till she's out of breath
Now we do the allemande left.
Left hand around your corners all
Promenade your partners all

(Repeat for other three couples in turn.  then two head couples at same time, then side two couples, then all four couples.)

The call is self explanatory.  But when you promenade after the do si do and swing it is in the direction THE GENT WAS GOING.

Paul Hunt is one of the finest callers in the country.  This call is from his forthcoming album on the Michael Herman Folk Dance Series soon to be released.  The album is a MUST.
OK, I wouldn't have guessed that the promenade was clockwise — in my experience it's always the man on the inside.  Presumably that's why it's in capitals.

Bachelor's Shack        Print this danceTop of page   Added 6-Dec-21

From Northern Junket Vol. 2, No. 1, Jume 1950.  Original wording on page 17    Archived here
…  Al Brundage of Stepney, Conn. was the next guest caller. Al called “Just Because,” “Marching through Georgia” the version where everyone marches around, and for his third call Al used “Bachelor's Shack” which was something that the dancers were not used to around this section.  After lining the ladies up with the side gents the call went like this:

Forward up six and back
Forward up six and the ladies stand there
The gents go back to the bachelor's shack
    (Four ladies are standing in the center)
The first gent does:
Right hand round with your right hand lady
    (with the # 1 lady)
Left hand round with your left hand lady
    (with the # 4 lady)
Right hand round with your right hand lady
    (with the # 2 lady)
Left hand round with your left hand lady
    (with the # 3 lady)
This brings 1st gent to 3rd gent's place.
Elbow round with your left hand lady
    (this leaves # 1 gent in position to--)
Left hand round with your left hand lady
    (lady # 2)
Right hand round with your right hand lady
    (lady # 3)
Left hand round with your left hand lady
    (lady # 1)
Right hand round with your right hand lady
    (lady # 4)
Allemande left with your left hand,
dance right into a right and left grand, etc.
Then repeat for other men.

I'm not surprised they were confused!  Referring to your partner as “your right hand lady” is surely asking for trouble, especially when the next time it really does mean your right hand lady — and then there are two meanings for “your left hand lady” — first corner, then opposite.  I'm wondering if “Elbow round with your left hand lady” should really be “Right elbow round with your opposite man” (which would indeed leave the gent in position for “Left hand round with your left hand lady”), and that's because I know a dance called “The Bachelor Mill” which was published in the book “Advanced Square Dance Figures of the West and Southwest” by Lee Owens, Palo Alto, California: Pacific Books, 1950.  That dance is clearly derived from “Bachelor's Shack” though it has both head men leading the figure instead of just one.  You can see a facsimile of the book and below is how I call it.  I learnt the dance from Bill Litchman who had changed the order in which the men visit the women to make it easier to memorise, but after trying his version a few times I decided I preferred the original.  However I like Bill's addition of all four men doing the figure at once — that's great fun (for the caller)!

I can't find Bill's version on the Lloyd Shaw website any more, but it's archived here.

Tony Parkes says:

I agree 100 percent that “Elbow round with your left hand lady” is a typo.  (There are countless typos in Ralph's dance transcriptions.)  Every version of this dance I've seen in print or danced to live calling has the head two gents right elbow swing at this point.

I never had any trouble getting people to turn the ladies in the correct order. Once the side gents are out of the way, the ladies are standing in a little square. The active gent simply turns the one on the right, the one on the left, the next one on the right, and the next one on the left.

I learned this figure by dancing it to the calling of Dick Kraus at Columbia University in the 1960s.  Dick let me practice calling to his group, one figure a week, for several years.  In his book Recreation Leader's Handbook (1955), he says it “has been credited to Ivan Mardis, of Tucson, Arizona.”  (Other writers credit it to various other callers.)  In the book, Dick ends it with “Four little sisters form a ring, Go once around and then you swing” and “promenade.”  At Columbia his ending was a bit more elaborate: Four little sisters form a ring (i.e. ladies circle in the center), do-si-do partner, four gents star right once and a bit to the corner, allemande left, grand right and left halfway, and promenade home.

The Bachelor Mill        Print this danceTop of page   Added 6-Dec-21

Dance and call arranged by Jimmy Clossin of El Paso, Texas, from an original dance by George Waudby of Tucson, Arizona.


 
Heads lead to the right, circle left, head gents go home.

Lines of three forward and back; lone men forward and back.

Lines forward; those men fall back.  [All overlapped]

Head men turn partner R, corner L, Right-hand lady R, opposite lady L.  Each other R elbow once.

Now reverse it: opposite lady L, right-hand lady R, corner L, partner R.

All balance to partner, allemande left corner, ladies star right.

Men wheel your partner out of the star and promenade one place around the set, wheel around and promenade back again, wheel around and promenade all the way round in the usual direction.

Bill Litchman's addition:   After head men and side men have led the figure, all four men lead it - they do a right-hand star rather than a right-elbow turn.

I tell the head men to point at — and recognise — their partner, their corner, their right-hand lady and their opposite lady, and explain that they'll be turning them in that order and the ladies will be right where they are now.  People think I'm being unnecessarily pedantic, but then when I start the walkthrough there's general confusion and someone will say, “Colin, can you go through the order again please?”.

Any introduction you wish, then---

First couple balance, and first couple swing
First couple promenade the outside of the ring
When you're home I'll tell you what to do
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight.
Go down the center two, and four go back (1st & 3)
Down the center four, head two cast off six
When you meet, swing at the head and foot (1 & 3)
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight.
Go down the center as before, and four go back
Down once more and cast off four,
When you meet, swing at the head and foot
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight.
Go down the center as before, and four go back
Down the center, and cast off two,
When you meet, it's everybody swing
There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight.
Allemande left, and grand right and left
Half way round, and promenade back home,
Promenade, promenade your own,
Then you bow to your partners one and all.

    Other couples do the same in turn

    Use any ending you wish

After their opening solo the ones lead across to meet the threes, pull them back till the ones are home, push them till the threes are home, then the ones split the threes, separate, go round the outside back home, and both head couples swing.  Lead, pull and push as before, and this time the ones separate and go through the gaps between the threes and a side couple, go around that side couple and both head couples swing at home.  Lead, pull and push as before, and this time the ones separate and go through the nearer side couple, go around one person, and everybody swing at home.

Tony Parkes adds:

Granted, this makes for a bit of a snooze fest for the other couples.  I've seen a few attempts at livening things up, including a right and left across for the sides after Couple 1's first and second trips through the middle.

This has no connection with the better known singing square (still current in England in the 21st century) which you can see at barndances.org.uk/detail.php?Title=Hot_Time_in_the_Old_Town_Tonight.

Tony Parkes says:

In the late 1940s and early 1950s there was much less standardization — in general, and specifically in the matter of what figure belonged with what tune in a singing call.  Dick Kraus used to call two different figures to Hot Time (depending on the crowd, not together as a medley): the one you linked to, with “pick up two” and the allemandes, and also a version of “ladies to the center back to back, gents run around the outside track.” The book “One Hundred and One Singing Calls” (Frank Lyman Jr, 1951) has six transcriptions of figures to this tune, although some are merely slight variations of the others.

as called by Duke Miller or Gloversville, N.Y

Introduction
Just everybody bow to your partner
And now to your corner as well
You allemande left and you grand right and left
Half way around to your pal
You re-verse her when you meet your partner
Then right and left back the other way
And when you are home
You will all swing your own
Because, Just Because.

Figure
The head two girls chain over
And chain those ladies home once more
The side two janes will ladies chain
Chain them across the floor
You do si do with your corner
And swing your lady just once around
Then take the corner maid
And all promenade and
You sing Because, Just Because.

Break (following each figure)
You do si do with your corner
Come back and do si do your own
Allemande left with the one on your left
And allemande right with your own
Allemande left - grand right and left
Half way around to your maid
Then you take that maid
And all promenade - sing
Because, Just Because.

Conclusion
The last time through each should have own partner, so for last three lines substitute:

Now you have your own
You promenade her home.
And thank her, that is all.

We think this is one of the best of the so called 'modern numbers '.  It is a catchy polka tune and the dancers love to help out the caller on the last line.

Many callers in the country arc associated with a certain tune and dance.  Whether they are the originators of that figure or tune is beside the point.  The fact remains that they are connected with it.  So it is with Duke Miller.  After this past summer he will always be thought of in connection with this dance and tune 'Just Because'.  It will make him famous.  And he will come to hate it, which is one of the prices of fame.  He was not the first to call it and he would be the first to tell you so.  But he does a beautiful job of calling it, as you will agree once you've danced with him.

I don't know whether the music is still in copyright, so I'm not giving it here.

Any introduction you wish:

The two head couples separate half way round the ring
The two side couples half right and left to the other side
All swing your partners, swing 'em round and round
Do si do your corners all, your corners do si do

Take your corners where you are and promenade the town (to gent's place)

Repeat once more for the head couples.
Repeat twice more for the side couples
      or four times in all.

Here's my understanding of the call.  A year later Ralph Page published his version which is very similar.

A1:Heads separate and go half-way round the outside.  Sides right and left through.
A2:All swing partner.  Do-si-do corner.
B1:Do-si-do- partner.  Gents cross over (I suggest like a right-hand star half-way but without hands) and quick swing with opposite lady.  [Gents are now home.]
B2:Promenade current corner all the way round, to the gent's home place.
 Ladies have moved right.  Repeat for the heads and then twice for the sides.

(Northern New England version)

Suggested music: “Reel des Moissionaires”

Here's exactly the way we call it.

Head two couples bow and swing
Right there at the head of the ring
Lead to the right and circle four
Once around and then no more
Lady in the cage , and act your age
Circle three hands once around
Girl steps out, gent steps in
Three hands round you go agin
Gent comes out, gives lady a swing
Up to the next and the same old thing
One with four, three with two
Four hands round that's what you do
Birdie in the cage, circle three
Bird flies out, crow hops in
Three hands round and gone agin
Crow comes out, gives birdie a swing
Home you go, every one swing oh
Swing your partner round in place
With a big smile on your face
Allemande left like sawin' pine
Right hand to partner, walk down the line
When you meet her, promenade eight
Promenade with sister Kate.
Then swing your partners, swing 'em all
Slim ones, fat ones, short or tall.

Side two couples bow and swing
Right there on both sides of the ring
Watch out there!  You'll break a toe
Lead to the right and round you go
Birdie in the cage three rails high
You be a preacher and so will I
Hen comes out, rooster hops in
Flap your wings and round agin
Rooster comes out, gives old hen a swing
On to the next and same old thing
Four with three, two with one
Circle four you're not quite done
Gent stays out, lady steps in
Don't forget to go round agin
Birdie comes out, old hawk's in
Join your hands and gone agin
Hawk comes out, gives birdie a swing
Home you go and swing your own
Ain't you lucky the bird ain't flown?
You swing yours, I'll swing mine
Rather swing my girl any old time
Allemande left like swingin' a birch
Grand right and left like catchin' perch
When you meet her, pass right by
Wink at the next as you go by
Kiss the last one on the sly
And swing your partner by and by
Swing ' em men, swing ' em all
They ain't done that since way last fall
Promenade all around the hall
Kiss her quick or not at all.

I can't find the tune “Reel des Moissionaires” anywhere on the web.  “Bird in the cage” is a traditional Southern figure from what we in England call Running Set — see round.soc.srcf.net/dances/krs/guts.  Ralph gives a different version of the dance — Birdie Fly Away — in Volume 2 number 12.

Music: Solomon Levi

Verse:
The first lady and opposite gent
Lead out to the right
Circle three hands round you go
And hold her good and tight
Break those rings and then you form
Two lines upon the side
The two upon the head around
The outside now will slide.

Chorus:
Half way round and up the center
You meet her there and swing
The other six join hands around
And make a great big ring
A prettier girl, a nicer girl
A sweeter girl is she
Mow break that ring and swing your own
You swing your sweet Marie.

Verse:
The same head lady and opposite gent
Go forward to and fro (forward & back)
Forward again and pass right through
To the opposite side you go
The two ladies chassez the center (across)
The gents promenade (gents promenade across)
The two gents chassez the center (to place)
The ladles promenade (to place)

Chorus:
The same four holding the floor
Swing your partners in place
You've got no money, you've got your honey
So give her a good embrace
Right and left with your right hand couple
And right and left right back
Now right hand to your partners all
A grand chain round the track (grand r & l)

Repeat changes for each couple in turn.

Dick Best is one of the many good young callers working out of Greater Boston.  He calls regularly every Thursday night at the YWCA in Cambridge.  He is an excellent singer of folk songs too and has delighted New England Folk Festival audiences for many years.

This is a singing call which explains itself.  We think it is one of [his] finest calls.

I'm afraid doesn't explain itself to me!  First off, I have great difficulty setting the words to my version of the tune — maybe there's a very different version of the tune but I haven't found one, and surely in all versions the chorus will start “Oh, Solomon Levi” (or a similar phrase) which doesn't scan with “Half way round and up the center” or “The same four holding the floor”.  See for instance the MudCat discussion at mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=163862.  The words fit much better if you just play the verse (the first 16 bars) repeatedly and ignore the chorus — but surely the chorus is the best-known part of the tune.

“First lady and opposite gent” comes from the quadrille (and you see this in “Honest John Part Two”), but normally they would dance a figure with each other, whereas here they're working independently.  Here's my understanding of the dance.  I've added lines forward and back because I can't see how else to pad out the music — if you have any other ideas please Contact me.  The second verse starts like the second figure of The Plain Quadrille: first lady and opposite gent forward and back, and cross over.  But the quadrille continues with them crossing back to home place, whereas this has chassées and promenades.  That strikes me as similar to a move in “La Russe” where the first couple promenade through the third couple while the third couple cross the set outside them and then the reverse.  However in this dance it's the gents promenading through the ladies while the ladies cross the set outside them and then reversing it with the ladies promenading and the men crossing outside them.  And then the second half adds “(to place)” which doesn't make sense.  It never occurred to me that I would have the same problems interpreting dances from these books that I've met in my Interpretations of dances from the 17th and 18th centuries!  I'm going to ignore “to place” and tell the actives to get back to their partners for the swing (which lasts 8 bars, so it's not a rush).  Perhaps the line “Swing your partners in place” means that the actives have first to get back to place, and Ralph added the erroneous “(to place)”.  Then a right and left through (and back) with the right-hand couple takes 8 bars — but there's no music left for the grand chain!  Maybe this is where the chorus of the song at last appears, and people would sing it as they danced.  Dick uses the older term “grand chain” and Ralph explains that this means “grand right and left”.  All the way round in 8 bars is very busy, but maybe it was understood that the chain is half-way followed by a promenade, so that's what I'm giving here.

A1:First lady and third gent move to their own right and circle with that side couple, breaking into lines with the actives on the end near their home position.
A2:Lines of three forward and back.  Lone dancers (first gent and third lady) go round the outside (clockwise?) half-way.
A3:Same two meet in the middle and swing while the other six circle left once around them.
A4:Finish the circle and all swing partner at home.
A5:First lady and third gent forward and back.  Cross over.
A6:Head gents lead across the set and then turn away from each other while head ladies cross the set outside their partners (but inside the set, not outside the side couples) and turn in.  Ladies then lead through the gents and turn out while gents cross the set outside their partners and turn in.
A7:First lady and third gent cross back to their partners, and head couples swing.
A8:Head couples right and left through with the side couple on their right, and back again.
B:(first 8 bars only): Grand chain half-way.  Promenade partner home.
 Repeat with second lady and opposite man, then third, then fourth.

A singing call to same music

Oh Paddy dear, do you hear?
You lead up to the right,
Balance to that lady there
And swing her nice and light.
Then it's up to the next you go.
And do a three hand swing.
Return now to your partner
And salute the dear old thing,
Allemande left with your corners all
And a right hand to your own,
A grand right and left you go,
Until you meet your own.
You swing her when you meet her,
You swing her nice and light,
Or there'll be trouble brewin' sure
When Pat gets home tonight.

      (You are now across the set from original position. Stay there and continue with --)

Now Maggie dear, do you hear?
You lead up to the right,
Swing the mick who's standing there
And hug him nice and tight.
Then it's up to the next you go,
And do a three hand swing,
Return now to your partner,
And salute the dear old thing.
Allemande left your corners all,
And a right hand to your own.
A grand right and left you go.
Until you meet your own.
You swing her when you meet her,
Swing around in place,
Swing your Irish colleen
With a smile upon your lace.

(Repeat calls for second couple, THEN)

Now all four ladies join left hands
And circle half way round,
Right hand to your opposite
And balance four in line.
Swing your opposite all around,
Is the order of the day,
But now that you have swung him
You go back the other way.
All four ladies join right hands
And circle half way home.
Left hand to your partner
And balance four in line,
Swing your partners, swing your own,
By the waning of the moon,
The next gent must be ready to dance
When I begin the tune.

(Go back to beginning for 3rd & 4th couples)

The whole of this issue is “Irish” — for instance the contra is “St. Patrick's Day in the morning”.  St. Patrick's Day is March 17th and there's a picture of a leprechaun holding a card with this date at the end of the dance instructions.  It's much celebrated in the States (though hardly at all in England)..

The tune is in the classic collection “O'Neill's Music of Ireland” (1905).

Wearing of the Green

The original here is written in 4/4 and looks to me like a Strathspey, but I'm guessing (and I'd welcome correction) that Ralph expected a jig so that's what I've given in my music link.

Here's my understanding of the call.

 Figure:
A1:First gent out to your right-hand lady (4 steps); balance to her.  Swing.
A2:First gent move on to the next couple (the threes), circle left once around, then go home and bow to your partner.
B:(16 bars): All allemande left corner and grand chain half-way round.
 Swing partner (all opposite home place).
 For the next time through the tune the first lady goes out to her right-hand man and does exactly the same, all ending home.
 Repeat figure for the second couple.
 Break:
A1:Four ladies form a left-hand star (4 steps); star half-way, keep hold and give right hand to opposite man's right to form two interlocking waves of four.  Balance right and left twice.
A2:Swing opposite.
B:Four ladies form a right-hand star; star half-way, give right hand to partner.  Balance right and left twice.
 Swing partner.
 Repeat figure for third and fourth couples, and finish with the break.

The timing is probably not as precise as that!  In some singing squares the call comes as the dancers are supposed to move, rather than prompting them ahead of time, so unless they already knew this dance there would be a pause before the ladies were ready to do their stars.

I'm assuming “And do a three hand swing” means circle left, because the next dance contains “And swing four hands so dandy (circle four)”.

as called by Edgar Robillard, N. Adams, Mass.

Music - The Same

Introduction:

Salute your corners, partners the same
And circle eight hands so dandy
Circle left around the hall
With your Yankee Doodle Dandy
The other way back
On the same old track
The other way back so dandy
Mind the music and the step
And with the girls be handy.

The Dance:

The first head couple lead to the right
And swing four hands so dandy (circle four)
You balance too, and pass right through
And swing your opposite dandy.
Pass right back in the same old track
Pass right back so dandy
Pass right back in the same old track
And swing your partner dandy.
Then it's up to the next you go
And swing four hands so dandy
You pass right through with a how-de-do
And swing your opposite dandy.
Pass right back in the same old track
Pass right back so dandy
Pass right through and spin her too
You swing your partner dandy.
And It's up to the last you go
And swing four hands so dandy
You balance too, and pass right through
And swing your opposite dandy.
Pass right back in the same old track
Pass right back so dandy
Pass right back in the same old track
And swing your partner dandy.

Chorus:

Now do si do your corners all
The same unto your dandy
Allemande left your corners all
Give right hands to your dandy.
Go right and left around the hall
Right and left so dandy
Go all the way, go all the way
Go all the way so dandy.
You pass your honey with a nice little smile
You'll meet her bye and bye
Turn her around when you meet her there
Then promenade your dandy.
Promenade round, you promenade round
You promenade so dandy
Go all the way, go all the way
Go all the way so dandy.

Repeat the figure and chorus for each of the other three couples.

I've given the tune without repeats, so that once through the tune fits the Introduction.  I'm being pedantic about the timing of the Introduction but you certainly wouldn't want to teach it that way.  In fact it's better if you don't walk through the Introduction at all — just start the singing and it will all flow naturally.  I've already quoted Tony Parkes as saying that walkthroughs were much more common than they would become a decade later, but maybe you would leave out walking through the Introduction and just walk through the figure.  The timing of the figure may not be exact either, but it's certainly busy, so don't let anyone swing for more than a couple of seconds!

 Introduction:
A:Honour corner and partner (4 bars).  Circle left (half-way).
B:Circle left a quarter more, then circle right home.
 The Dance:
A:First couple out to the couple on your right and circle left with them.  Balance; pass through and turn back.
B:Quick swing with opposite (just once around, to face partner); pass through and turn back.  Quick swing with partner.
 First couple repeat this with the threes, then with the fours, finishing home.
 Chorus:
A:All do-si-do corner.  Do-si-do partner.
B:Allemande left corner; start a grand chain all the way round.
A:Continue the grand chain until home, then give right hands and gent twirl the lady into New England promenade position.
B:Promenade all the way.
 Repeat the figure and chorus for each of the other three couples.

Music - Anything you like, though we prefer to use Buffalo Gal.

Any introduction, then:

Head two couples separate
Go halfway round outside the ring
Side two couples half right and left
All stay on the opposite side
Allemande left with the corners there
Do si do your own right there
The four men go across the ring
Give the opposite girl a swing
Take your corner from where you are
And promenade round the ring.

Head two couples separate
Go half way round outside the ring
Side two couples half right and left
And you're all on the opposite side
Allemande left with the corners there
Do si do your own right there
The four men go across the ring
To give the opposite girl a swing
Take the corner lady there
And promenade round the ring

Repeat twice for side couples. Or if you like a longer dance have head couples start the figure four times. Then a brief chorus figure; then four times with side couples starting. This is a nice “breakdown” figure; everyone dances most all the time.  It's sort of a screwy way to get to promenade your corner but nevertheless it's a lot of fun to dance.

Music - McEachern' s Breakdown

The Dance

The head two couples forward and back
The side two couples forward and back
The head two ladies chain to the right just half way round
Now ladies grand chain through the center of town (half way)
The head two couples right and left two by two (half way)
The side two couples right and left too (half way)
Do-si-do your corners all
Come back and. swing your own little doll.

The new head ladies chain to the right, now chain them just halfway
Now grand chain them through the center, don't you take all day
The head two couples half right and left, just like you did before
The side two couples do the same, keep moving 'cross the floor
Allemande left your corners
Allemande right your own
Swing your corner lady, promenade her home.

(repeat entire dance 3 more times)

The tune, Cec McEachern's Breakdown, was published in 1950 in a Canadian book called “Don Messer's Favorite Melodies”.  And this time I'm confident I've understood the call.

According to Wikipedia, “A switcheroo is a sudden unexpected variation or reversal, often for a humorous purpose.  It is colloquially used in reference to an act of intentionally or unintentionally swapping two objects.”  In this case the ladies are switching position all the time, while the men just move across to the other side and back again.

A1:Heads forward and back.  Sides forward and back.
A2:Heads to the right: ladies chain.  All four ladies chain across.
B1:Heads right and left through.  Sides right and left through.
B2:All do-si-do corner.  Swing partner.
A3:Heads to the right: ladies chain.  All four ladies chain across (to original partner).
A4:Heads right and left through.  Sides right and left through (all home).
B3:All allemande left corner, allemande right partner, swing corner.
B4:Promenade new partner to the man's place.
 Ladies have moved right.  Repeat for the heads, then twice for the sides, and I'm sure Ted would have put in a break at the beginning, middle and end, making it11 times through the tune .

Corners of the Hall        White Cockade: Music in PDF, MIDI and ABC formatPrint this danceTop of page   Added 6-Dec-21

From Northern Junket Vol. 2, No.11, October 1951.  Original wording on page 22    Archived here
As called by Dick Castner.

Music - Any tune you like.  Dick likes The White Cockade.  We prefer The Low Backed Car.

First couple promenade around the outside of the ring
And right and left through with the couple you meet (2nd couple)
Right and left through on the corners complete (3rd with 4th)
Everyone right and left back on the same old track
Ladies chain on the corners of the hall (1 with 2; 3 with 4)
Half promenade on the corners of the hall
Half right and left back home
Circle four on the sides of the floor (1 with 2; 3 with 4)
Break that circle out into line, forward all and back
Forward again and ladies chain the grand square
When you're home you swing your own.

     Each couple leads out in turn.

This is a combination of at least two popular quadrille numbers, and is a great favorite among our French-Canadian dancers.  Sometimes it is called “Corners of the World.”  No matter what you call, it remains a fine New England style quadrille.

Again the word “quadrille” to remind us of its origins.  The first half comes from the first figure of The Plain Quadrille but with couples working in pairs rather than two couples dancing the figure while the other two wait for their turn.  I don't know where the second half comes from, but that's down to my lack of knowledge of quadrilles.

A1:First couple promenade outside, all the way.
A2:Ones with twos, threes with fours, right and left through, and back.
B1:Same four, ladies chain over and back.
B2:Same four half promenade.  Right and left through back again.
A3:Same four circle left once around, opening up into lines with heads on the right-hand end (nearest home position).  Lines forward and back.
A4:Ladies chain across the set, and wheel round to face up and down.  Ladies chain up and down, and wheel round to face across.
B3:All that again.
B4:Swing partner at home.
 Repeat for each couple in turn.

Birdie Fly Away        Print this danceTop of page   Added 6-Dec-21

From Northern Junket Vol. 2, No.12, November 1951.  Original wording on page 21    Archived here
Music - Any tune that you like to call to.

The first couple lead out to the right
And circle four and hold on tight
Lady in the middle and you circle three
Lady steps out, gent steps in
Join hands and circle again
Gent comes out and gives lady a swing
And you both lead on in a bigger ring
Circle six with the next
Birdie in the middle and you circle five
No mistakes now, look alive
Birdie hops out, old crow in
Join hands go round again
Crow comes out, gives birdie a swing
Then you all lead on in a great big ring
Circle eight hands around
Birdie in the middle and you circle seven
That's one way to go to heaven
Keep circlin' left, but raise your hands
Let the birdie in the middle fly away
You won't see her again today
Everybody swing and promenade hone

Repeat three more times for the other ''birdies''

It's equally as much fun to let the “old crows” fly away instead of the “birdies”.

The dance as given here is a combination of a figure we saw at Stockton Folk Dance Camp and one that Al Smith, Winchester, Mass, used to call.

Another version of “Birdie in the Cage”, this time cumulative, so after swinging his partner the leading man picks up the next couple with his left hand to form a bigger circle.  You can see that Ralph is no purist: he combined figures from two places to create this dance.

As called by “Duke” Miller

Music: Any reel or breakdown you wish.  Introduction, break and ending - ad lib.

Head couples out to the right
And circle just half way round
Duck through - pass through - right and left through
Duck through - pass through - right and left through
Duck through - two ladies chain in the center of the floor
Turn and chain the outside four
Chain back, chain in the center
Put your own on your right
And circle four in the center of the floor
Four hands round and round you go
Break it up with a do pas o
Partner left, opposite right
Partner left and sides cut in
With a right hand around
Partner left and catch your corner
Promenade her and don't step on 'er.

Once more for heads - then twice for the sides
I'm not going to try and fit this into 8-bar A's and B's; it really is called unphrased.  Just a few points.

“Duck through” is what we now call “Dive through” — the insides arch, all move forwards, the outsides dive through and those making the arch — in this case the sides — do a California twirl to face back into the set with the gent still on the left.  Same again to get the heads back to the side where they started.  The heads dive through a third time and do a ladies chain in the middle with a power turn to face the nearer side couple. With the outside two chain over and back, heads finishing the chain back with a power turn to face the other head couple.  Head ladies chain to their own partner, and I don't see the need for “Put your own on your right” — she should already be there, so maybe it's just confirmation that the heads are indeed back with their partner.  After circling left the heads do a Do Paso — left-hand turn partner and the gents cross to right-hand turn the other lady, then cross back to left-hand turn partner enough to face the nearer side couple, with the gent on the left.  But this means the first couple are facing the second couple — so the first lady is facing her corner but the first gent isn't.

Once again Tony Parkes clarified things for me.

I can't blame you for assuming that “sides cut in” after the do paso refers to the side couple that the head couple was just working with.  But with my knowledge (some of it firsthand) of Duke, Ralph, and similar dances of the 1950s, I'm virtually certain that Duke meant the call to be interpreted in a different way.

I believe that in order for the dance to work out as Duke intended, the heads need to start the do paso when their backs are to their own home position, which would mean circling once and a quarter (or twice and a quarter, etc.).  Then “sides cut in” would mean that each side person turns his or her original corner by the right hand as the corner comes out of the last “partner left” of the do paso.  This will yield a normal corner progression.

Granted, the circle once and a quarter is not specified.  But there were a lot of non-directive calls in those days, and walkthroughs were much more common, even in “western style,” than they would become a decade later.

So here's my understanding:

 Heads lead to the right and circle left half-way.
 “Dive through”: Insides (sides) arch, outsides dive through and the archers do a California twirl to face in with the gent on the left.
 Middles (heads) pass through and do a right and left through with the other outside couple.
 Again dive through, pass through, right and left through.
 Dive through, so heads are facing the other head couple and you're all with your partner.
 Ladies chain over, with a power turn to face the outside two.
 Ladies chain with the outside two.  Chain back, and the middles (heads) do a power turn to face the other head couple.
 Ladies chain — now you're all back with your partner (where you were the last time you were together).
 Middles circle left 1¼ — all home.
 Middles do paso: partner left, men cross right, opposite left, men cross left, partner right, so middles have your back to your partner, facing your corner.
 Right-hand turn corner, left-hand turn partner.  Promenade corner to man's place.
 Repeat the figure for the heads, then twice for the sides.

From Northern Junket Vol. 7, No. 4, April 1961.  Original wording on page 32    Archived here
Music: Back to Donegal.  Original Square by Abe Kanegson

Any intro, chorus and ending you like.

All four gents turn out to the right
     (Gents turn out from set. go to stand beside right hand lady, passing behind partner)
And on the right remain
The ladies all turn out to the left
The ladies grand chain (half way)
You chain 'em over and turn 'em around
And swing the colleens all
Swing round and round with the girl you found
In Dear Old Donegal
Then allemande left your corner girl
Pass by the one you swung
With the next you meet you do si do
And promenade her home
You promenade that lady, promenade them all
Then forward all and back to place
     (One step balance forward and back toward center)
In Dear Old Donegal

Here's my understanding of the figure.  It's unusual to do a ladies chain followed by a swing, but certainly not impossible, though modern dancers might prefer to omit the courtesy turn and just have the ladies right-hand star half-way into a longer swing.  And I don't see why the forward and back should be just a balance step — I think there's time for a regular forward and back.

A1:Gents cast out over left shoulder to finish in the place of the next gent to the right.  Ladies cast out over right shoulder to finish in the place of the next lady to the left.  (All now with opposite)
A2:All four ladies chain across.  Swing this one.
B1:Allemande left (current) corner, pass by the one you swung.  Do-si-do the next (original corner).
B2:Promenade to the man's place.  All go forward and back.
 Ladies have moved right.

Antigonish Square        Print this danceTop of page   Added 23-Nov-21

From Northern Junket Vol. 7, No. 9, November 1962.  Original wording on page 29    Archived here
Original dance by Rod Linnell
Suggested music: Whatever you like.  Use any intro, break and ending you wish.

The head two ladies chain to the right (halfway)
And turn the girls around
Same two ladies chain across the square (halfway)
Allemande left your corners
Come back and do si do
Then all four men star by the right
Three-quarters round the ring
When you meet your partner (original)
Stop and give her a swing
Then take that lady with you and promenade
One full circle around the ring

Antigonish is a town in Antigonish County, Nova Scotia, Canada.  No difficulty understanding this one, except that if the men star right three-quarters they meet their opposite, not their original partner.  Coming out of a do-si-do, a left-hand star would be better than a right-hand star, and would also flow more smoothly into a swing, so I'm making that one small change.  I'm also assuming that “one full circle” means you promenade once around to this new place, rather than telling them they need to promenade 1¼ instead of just ¼

It's interesting that Rod has to say “halfway”.  In modern squares and contras it's taken for granted that a ladies chain or right and left through is one way only, but these figures both derive from the 19th century quadrille where they meant “and back again”.

A1:Head ladies chain to the right.  Same ladies chain across.
A2:Allemande left current corner.  Do-si-do current partner.
B1:Men star left ¾.  Swing original partner.
B2:Promenade all the way, which means all couples are one place to the left of where they started.
 Repeating the figure for the (new) heads and twice for the sides gets everybody home.

as called by Paul Hunt and recorded by Folk Dancer on MH 1041
A singing quadrille for your “Dance of the 50 's” party

Any introduction you wish

The two head couples promenade half around the outside ring
Up the center and right and left through
Til you get back home again

Then you circle four with the couple on your right
Then you break and make two lines
Forward eight, and eight fall back On the Old Fall River Line
Then you chain your ladies 'cross, the set (don't return)
Chain the ladies down the side - -
Then you chain the girls across the set
Turn around and watch 'em go!
Then you chain 'em home, yes right back home
And hand them to their beaux.
Now you allemande left with your corner
And you allemande right with your own
You swing that corner lady there
You swing her all alone
Then you promenade with the one you swung
Hurry up, you're doing fine
Promenade like a big parade On the Old Fall River Line.

Repeat figure once more for head couples
Repeat figure twice more for side couples.

Any ending you wish.

Tony Parkes notes:

It's in Chip Hendrickson's “little black book,” which Walter Lenk has kindly made available online (page 10): www.configular.com/SingingSquares/Chip_Hendricksons_CallBook.pdf

I have the original 78 disc of author Paul Hunt calling it.  His wording on the record is consistent with his book “Eight Yards of Calico” and with the two transcriptions above.  Note that there is an 8-count pause in the call at the end of the introduction, and two 4-count pauses in the middle of the figure.  Chip's transcription preserves these.  There is also an 8-count tag on the record at the end of each figure, to finish the promenade.  This tag is noted in Hunt's book but not in Ralph's or Chip's transcription.
