Hi, Martin,
I am inclined to dance this by advancing using a modified setting
step on the right foot so that I am leading with my right shoulder as
I advance and can look my partner full in the face. I then turn to
face my corner while travelling/setting with the left foot and lose
sight of my partner during this manoeuvre and we finish back to back.
It may sound cumbersome but it is done quietly and there is no
mistaking at whom I am looking and it is a definite move and not just
drifting forward with my eye on swivels between my partner and first
corner and a silly uncertain look on my face.
Cheers, Ron :)
