This traditional dance celebrates the ...

This traditional dance celebrates the movement for political and economic reform in Scotland at the end of the 18th century, which unlike its predecessors in France and the USA didn't really lead anywhere.

The setting movement served as an inspiration for the middle part of The Reel of the 51st Division, while the dance as a whole is fairly typical of the early 19th century, when many dances followed the »Something-Something-Down-the-middle-and-up-Poussette« pattern.
