If anyone can explain the gypsy turn (1 and a half times) in this Pat Donaldson dance that would be very helpful and if anyone can provide full instructions I would be most grateful.

The nearest I can get to describing it is it's like doing a two-handed turn but without giving hands.
When I used to do English Country Dancing (years ago) I remember two sorts of 'gypsy' movement: facing your partner or back to back, in both cases eyeing each other up like two cats about to start a fight.
In the St Valentine's Day dance, judging by the crib (I haven't seen the full instructions), it looks as if you'd face your partner and dance round them with no hands given, but good eye-contact.
