Or maybe, based on what folks often actually do, into "advance (SkC)
for one bar, set in place beginning on the left foot for two bars,
retire (your choice here) for one bar"? Or even "advance, set for one
bar, retire, set for one bar"? ;)

I watched Mary Murray teach basic class "retire" at Ramblewood last
fall, making the point that if you forget to SKIP strongly on that
retiring step, you're dancing pas de basque, and you ought to be
dancing skip change. Good point and well made. They all did it right.
