Where you are in lines of six, dance up to the band and high kick, turn, dance away and high kick, reel in and out of your line of six...
Three couples in a line across the room, all facing up to the band...
There'll be lines forming up behind you, and there might be another line next to you. The people at the bottom of the room will find they've got the most room to dance...
You need a partner⬀, find your way onto the dancefloor and join a line facing the band.
The music can be 32 or 64 bar reels. The dance takes 64 bars...

You'll be doing a "double cast", which means you keep hold of your partner and make a turn to the left... If you are at the right hand end, you have to lead...
When you are making the arch, arrange it along the line so people can duck through it while heading away from the band. Remember that people going through have to dance back to their new places in the line.
You'll find callers who call different sequences of moves in the C2 part; the Back to Back before the Two Hand turn. Do what you prefer...
