The movement in A1 and A2 bars 5-8 is a half-figure eight for the active gender people (ie end opposite where you start) whilst the other gender people swap places along the line with the person who was in the gate with them.
In A2 1-4, your neighbor is actually your partner!
The dance is called Leesburg Assembly Too because it turns out that there is already a dance called Leesburg Assembly.
The tune is so good that there are other dances which have been written for it. Starring Loretta by Bob Green (you can see it here} and Confluence by Dan Blim.
