This dance was well received at my informal summer technique class (to teach the corner chain). The figure in bars 25-32 was particulary well liked.
I love this dance - but I am biased! Jan jones
All Scottap URLs given as online sources in this SCDDB are dead. We need to recover this source collection (does anyone have a backup?) and put it on another website, or else add the original text to each dance’s data on SCDDB. Does this raise new copyright issues, or can we assume that posting is permitted as Alan Paterson already had permission?
Great fun, wonderful music! Marcela Galve From Buenos Aires Scottish Country Dancers, Argentina
I don’t see that you know a source for this dance, so I don’t know that I was taught the correct version, but the left shoulder reel (as I was taught it) begins with person 5 giving left shoulder to person 4 (rather than person 2, as indicated in the diagram). That choice of who to begin the reel with flows smoothly from the right shoulder reel in the first 8 bars.
Thanks for making so many of these cribs/diagrams available.
for some reason, this is recorded as a 3 person- and not a 3-couple dance.
Good dance that lives or dies on the phrasing of the hands across - some dancers tend to get anxious and loose their cool and timing.
To facilitate the 2H turn when the man passes below the lady, the hands should not to held tight but rather the hands should slip into the turn
Best dance I have ever seen.
The BH switch for the 1st couple at the end should indeed be a RH switch.
