This is an easy double-length (32 count) schottische sequence devised by Oskar Duenzeg of Terre Haute, IN in 1903.
Half closed (military schottische) position, both partners facing line of dance.
Part I - Balance and Promenade (8 counts): Step forward on outside feet (1), rock back on inside feet (3), and run forward three steps on outside feet (5, 6, 7).
Part II - Balance and Promenade (8 counts): Repeat on inside feet.
Part II - Two Step (16 counts): Close up to waltz position and dance four full turns of turning Two-Step.
While no specific music is suggested, the dance is said to be in schottische time.
