    Hi Simon and others
    Yes, I see it could be side by side hands instead of promenade.
    
    Yes, I have seen cpls following each other around their corner person.
    
    That said, I did ask David Queen when he was in Victoria and he did
    say " I can tell you there is no promenade"
    
    Thank you for your reply and other private reply to clear this
    question that has been on my mind.
    Cheers
    Marie

    Marie,
    
    I have to say that I would go with whatever David Queen suggests given
    that it was his father who devised the dance back in 1969.  Also, I have
    to admit I have never seen it danced with promendae.  And, your
    instructions say 'dance up/down' which I have always understood to be
    nearer hands.
    
    For interest, Angus MacLeod was the founder of the Clan MacLeod Pipe
    Band in Liverpool (just down the road from where I grew up), which was
    the band Alex Queen (David's father) piped in.
    
    Rgds,
    Phill
