Danced 1-4 times after 1 walkthrough as a refresher; it was on last week's social so it should be familiar to many.
4/4L (3s and 4s crossed over, 1s and 4s active) [to the tune Sleepy Maggie]
1-8 Actives cross RH, cast in 1 place, cross RH, cast to the right in tandem. 2c and 3c step out on 3-4.
9-12 Actives LSh 1/2 tandem reel of 3 across the dance (Men lead), finish in lines of 4.
13-16 All set in lines, change places RH up and down
17-20 All chase CW half-way
21-24 Actives RHA in the middle just under once round while corners chase another half-way round. (Actives finish W in front of M facing M's 1st corner)
25-32 Actives in tandem (woman in lead) dance 2 diagonal half reels of four, pass RS between and pass RS at end.
(This was formerly a 3c dance; 1c crossing below 3c on .
To make 17 - 24 look seamlessly smooth, some components may take fractions of a bar longer or shorter than indicated
TAC Notes On bar 17, 2nd man dances up & in to meet 1st woman. Both cpls turn inward to face up on bar 20, then 2nd man casts off to meet partner while 1st man dances up to join his partner, ready to lead up.
4 couples in a square set, 32x4
1-4 1s cross into a half figure 8, passing between sides and finishing in front of 3s
5-8 Heads RHA
9-12 1s cross into half figure 8 home
13-16 1s turn 2H to place
17-20 Heads turn RH 1 1/4 into a line of 4, Men BtB in center
21-24 Set twice
25-32 Reel of 4 back to places
Repeat for each couple in turn.
Teaching Note: Reel is a slightly long trip for the men.
Marc, remember SCD squares are numbered clockwise from the top
I&A, no walkthrough
Note: Cosh explicitly tells 1c to pass Lsh in [9-24]; however the Rsh pass is quite common, and nicknamed »Mairi's Divorce«.
