Out side lines turns in lace and faces the inside line and backs up a few paces(toward audience ) and holds position with hip shimmy. Inside lines vine-walk with hip shimmy up parade.As the inside line moves forward the back of out side line files in their line at the back. Dancers match vining walk of dancers ahead of them.

As the last dancers from outside lines file in the 2 vining lines will be sustained until Dee blows 2 short whistles. This signals the first group to turn in and back up allowing the inside group to pass them up the center. Basically walking shimmy from 4 lines and back to 2 lines, then back to 4 lines. (We can keep doing this, or reboot.)
