Strip the willow

The basic concept of this figure is that the top couple in a longways set does
a partner right elbow turn once and a half around, and then the gent does a series of left elbow turns with each lady alternating with a right elbow turn with his partner. At the same time the top lady does a series of left elbow turns with each gent alternating with a right elbow turn with her partner. Here is a more detailed description: the top couple of a longways set does a right elbow turn once and a half around and then they each do a left elbow turn once around with the next person in the opposite line. Top couple meet in the middle for a partner right elbow turn once around and then they each turn the next person in the opposite line with a left elbow turn; and so on down the line (or in some dances, up the line).
