Reel for Alice

Stewart Murray · June 17, 2017, 10:25 a.m.

The simultaneous figures of 8 on the sides are great fun. But who was or is Alice?

A Note on Alice Murphy

Gordon Robinson · Sept. 14, 2017, 6:12 p.m.

A Reel for Alice is dedicated to Alice Murphy and is contained in a book of Roy Goldring dances also called A Reel for Alice and Other Social Dances.

Roy Goldring notes on the index page "Alice Murphy was a critical helpful tester of my new dances and is (sic) seems appropriate that the last one she checked should bear her name." I believe that she was also a dance teacher and would test the dances in her classes.
