Hi Luke,
        It depends on the skill levels in the hall.  If I have a lot of first 
timers or perpetual beginners I use a very simple dance like 

        For teaching I would much rather do the chain there and back to give 
more practice; the Yearn means that the dancers are set up ready to start the 
chain (no guarantee they will be in the right place after a beginner swing!); 
and the ladies flow out of the second chain to start the hey.

        By the way, I see you put the apostrophe in “gent’s chain”, so surely 
it should be “ladies’ chain” ☺

            Happy dancing,
