|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.|
