Video Notes
The first repeat is danced exactly as for 1st couple; the second repeat is a composite of 2nd and 1st couples' movements in the full dance:

  1-8   Danced as second couple, i.e., as they would immediately after having completed the first repeat in a 2-couple set.

  9-16 As first couple but danced from 2nd place.

17-24 As first couple but started from 2nd place and finishing in 1st place.

25-32 As first couple and danced from 1st place.

As a more formal educational exercise which requires more awareness of the music when ghosts replace 1st couple, stand for bars 9-23, step in on bar 24 and dance bars 25-32, the allemande, from 2nd place. This is the path followed by the younger dancers in the family's 2-couple video.
