Men's paths are characterized by full lines, Ladies' by broken, 1st couple's by emboldened. Note that, since there is some overlap, each element of the path is characterized by its first Dancer in the Chase. Thus the whole of the Dancing man/lady's path is characterized by him/her; the second Dancer in each Chase characterizes the path from his/her Starting Position to the Dancing man/lady's; the third Dancer in each Chase characterizes the path from his/her Starting Position to the second Dancer's.
Arrow heads show the Finishing Positions, but not the Facing Directions, of the Dancing couple, only.
