Poussette For 4 Couples

Poussette For Four Couples in Scottish Country Dancing is intended as a Progression for 4 Couples, with 1st Couple Finishing in 4th Place. 3rd and 4th Couples perform the same movements as 2nd Couple in the standard Pas-de-basque Poussette but 1st Couple would need rocket assistance to Travel Down the Men's Side line from 1st to 4th Place in one gigantic leap on the first beat of bar 3.
