                   Ladies step forward and Slide R while Gents Slide L along the side (3) you are back to the place you began the mad robin 
Plus Part      Gents Walk Straight Across the set passing neighbor gent by right shoulder while Ladies Slide L along the side into the spot your neighbor just vacated (2) 
                  All end in Long Wavy Lines holding right hands with your partner, gents facing out, ladies facing in.

With a mixed crowd I demo Mad Robin Plus. 
Slow to moderate tempo. If you have the Rodney Miller Airdance CD - listen to Fred Bartell/Jig Jazz. This or something like it works perfectly.
