Jeanetta McColl wrote this dance ...

Jeanetta McColl wrote this dance on a whim and felt that 6/8 pipe marches would be the appropriate musical accompaniment. Her brother, lain, suggested that their father's composition be used as the title tune.

Super fun

Just danced this (again) at the Berkeley Youth Experienced Class. Wow. That is a fun dance. Love the initial chase and turn into the chase half way figure.
