My other dances - Chris Page's Contra Dance Site
The rotational speed of allemanding is up to the individual dancers. Depending on how the allemandes are negotiated, either the man or the woman could start the hey. Men pull by left, give right to neighbor. Women reach behind with left hand, and scoop up the men in a clockwise courtesy turn, men going forward and women going backwards.
