I'd call it turning your partner, albeit "intensely" (i.e. keeping as close 
together as possible), and turning around a central pivot into your partner's
place certainly happens in period! (Gelosia, Bizzaria d'Amore, Black Alman, 

That is definitely period, no question.  Taking hands and circling.  If "palming" was just code language for grasping hands and circling, then I have no problem with that.  If so, then I would change the choreographic description, to prevent confusion, and say "take right hands and circle PL" or whatever.
