When I first wrote Festival ...

When I first wrote Festival Interceltique, I had it with dancers in square sets. so the promenade has the dancers changing set. Unfortunately, on the original dance-through with the Lorient team there were only 5 couples, so we had to dance it as a single 5-couple set. They then taught it at the festival as a single circular set for as many as will, and this is the version that was published. Do try it with square sets - it gives a bit more meaning to the promenade. Of course, you will probably find that when the dancers re-form at the end of the promenade, you will have sets of 3 couples, 5 couples, 2 couples, 6 couples, just as happens with the Dunedin Festival Dance / Borrowdale Exchange. This is fine and the dance allows for it.

Cheers, Ian Brockbank, Edinburgh. Scotland
