It’s 4 slides to the right, then 4 to the left. Everyone is going in the same direction,
so there’s little risk of tripping. (The move is a simplification of the original formal
Lancers, in which partners went past each other, ladies in front to the left, gents behind
to the right.)
I always demonstrate it, modeling short slides to minimize rowdiness. (It’s closer to a
basketball shuffle than to an all-out gallop.) If the group is mainly retirement age or I
have other reasons to suspect they may be uncomfortable sliding, I offer “side, behind,
side, kick” as an alternative, pointing out that both versions can be mixed in a set
