Hi Mikhail,

As far as I remember, in the first you each do a little turn on the spot
(symetrically, M to the left and W to the right), which means you have to drop
hands and join up again at the end of bar 4. In the second, you take 1 step away
(a bit like the start of the turn on bar 3), but you don't drop hands and you
turn back towards your partner with the second step.

Seen from above, I'd say the first looks like a pair of spectacles: each dancer
goes round one of the lenses (and the joined hands are the bit that goes over
the nose). For the second, imagine a pair of double doors opening and shutting
(still seen from above).

Cheers,
Sophie
