The dance is based on Lucky Seven, but has more variation in the figures. One of the challenges with Lucky Seven is that beginners finish the Swing on the wrong side and are facing the wrong way for the Grand Chain (or Grand Right & Left if you are American!). The Promenade gives them a chance to get on the correct side, and the Promenade Into the Middle gets them back into a Circle in the correct place.
