Note on [27-28]: originally 2 PdB. modified by Drewry to SkCh. O. Otto says best variant is corners in PdB, 1c in SkCh
Alternative for [1-8]: 1c ends on own side. See 101 SCD and Manual
After the second turn the dancing couple continues the reel with bottom couple to change places.
see the crib for Ysobel for a comment by the deviser
Note: [3-4] is NOT in DTr position.
A quote: »the key that has always made this dance so wonderful is the flirting that dancing couple can do on bars 9-10 and 13-14 ; <...> if you actually set to your partner, advancing and at the last moment just slipping in BtoB to face and turn the appropriate corner, it's tremendous fun. The moment is all too rare, as apparently few teachers teach it this way, but it's a moment I savour.
Note: older instructions tell 1c to turn once LH on 23-24; the current (revised) instructions leave that unspecified.
