Sekstur paa række, Vejle

Country: Leestrup, Sydøstsjælland and Vejle Vesteregn, Denmark
Type: progressive longways set
Formation: longways set, Men to the R and women to the L as seen from the top of the set, facing partner.
Steps: pivot, walk
Music: 358:343, <>, CD: Kredsen runt II (DFSCD2), track 11.

1-8 (a) Couple 1 positions itself in front of the set, facing down the set, W1 standing to the R of M1.
Couples 1 and 2 circle CW two times round. 16 walking steps.
9-16 (b) Couples 1 and 2 R-hand chain, two times round. 16 walking steps.
17-24 (c) Couples 1 and 2 take waltz hold and dance 2 1/2 times around each other CCW, 16 pivot steps. Couple 1 finishes below couple 2, facing couple 3.
    As each couple reaches the top or bottom of the set, they stand over one set before dancing with the next approaching couple.
    Repeat as desired.
    Despite the name ("sekstur in a row") this is often done in a circle with an even number of couples, so that no couple ever stands over. In circle configuration, alternate couples face LOD and RLOD. All couples facing RLOD dance as couple 1 above, those facing LOD dance as couple 2 above.
