Chase Clockwise

The clockwise version of Chase is Chase clockwise.

It appears for example, in bars 17 to 24 of the Scottish Country Dance 4 Couple Reel by Jean Attwood The Falls Of Rogie -
Bars 1-8. 1s Cross By the right and Cast 1 Place, 1s Cross By the right and Cast 1 Place (Man up Lady down).
Bars 9-16. 1s Dance ½ Reels of 3 across (1M with 2s and 1L with 3s), Set in Lines across and change Places By the right with the Opposite person.
Bars 17-24. 2s+1s+3s Chase clockwise, 1s Dance for 4 steps and Turn By the right to Face First corner positions While 2s and 3s continue to Chase back to Place (as bar 16).
