Turn the Contra-Corners

In a setup with 3 couples stand the actives in the center; the first contra-corner stands slant right across, the second contra-corner slant left.
The actives touch right hands, go to the first contra-corner and turn by the left hands almost full around. Then they turn the partner with right hands half around, go to the second contra-corner, turn by the left hands, and return to their starting places, if nothing else is called.
All these turns are danced with somebody from the other line.

If the contra-corners shall be turned in a duple minor contra, then each second lady is first contra-corner for the active gent above, and second contra-corner for the active gent below. By the same token, each second gent is first contra-corner for the active lady below, and second contra-corner for the active lady above.
