They are all different to the traditional figures so I'll deal with them separately.
Tops: From facing up, turn tightly to the right and dance down the set, narrowly avoiding the bottoms, passing left shoulders, before taking two back steps and two capers.
Middles: From facing up, first double step up, veering slightly to the left, second turning tighly to the right, before taking two back steps and two capers.
Bottoms: From facing up, set off veering slightly to the right so as to avoid the tops, then veer slightly left so as to pass the middles on their way down the set (right shoulders) then take two back steps and two capers.
The key to the half-way point in this hey is that, having avoided and passed each other on the second double step, the middles and bottoms are now in a position to backstep into line, where they caper.
The tops can see none of this, of course and are oblivious to the wonder of it all.
The hey is then completed and the only point to note is which way you were going to turn before you were interrupted.
