Kent - is there no "bullet-proof" description of when the second couple step up? It bothers me when they wait for bars 7 and 8, surely they need to step up on 5 and 6 as the first couple leads down, giving the first couple a space to aim for?

>Focusing on just the handing in the first 8 bars:
1-2 "1st couple advance (one step), "take right hands, let go and
retire (one step)"
3-4 "Then, giving left hands, cross over and turn left about."
5-6 "1st couple, taking right hands, lead down to 2nd place, centre of the
dance"
7-8 "Turn by the left hand"
