Getting into lollie kicks from the come around, the first 4 counts are the same as in the come around. The remainder of the pattern is as follows:

For the leader: On 5, he steps with his right foot turning clockwise. On 6, he steps with his left foot and begins to turn the follower outward. On 7, the leader kicks with his right foot and turns the follower so that she is standing shoulder to shoulder next to the leader. On 8, he steps with his right foot. The leader should be able to open with the follower by using the centrifugal energy created by the clockwise stepping motion.

For the follower: On 5, she steps with her left foot turning clockwise. On 6, she steps with her left foot and begins to turn outward shoulder to shoulder with the leader. On 7 she kicks with her right foot and turns so that she is standing shoulder to shoulder next to the leader. On 8, she steps with her left foot. The follower will feel the connection with her back and the leader's right hand opening her up from the leader.

Lollie kicks: The kick on kick 7 was the first "Lollie." Lollies are four count steps that go kick 1, step 2, tap 3, step 4.

For the leader, he kicks with his right on 1, steps with his right on two, taps with his left on 3, and steps with his left on 4.

For the follower, she kicks with her left on 1, steps with her left on two, taps with her right on 3, and steps with her left on 4.

Going from Lollies to closed position: Lollies can be repeated indefinitely until the leader decides to do another pattern. To get back into the basic, after kick step 1,2 of the Lollies, the leader faces the follower and holds with his left foot on 3, pulls the follower into closed position, and steps with his left foot on 4.
