I started dancing in September ...

I started dancing in September 1994 at Fermilab with a group that had started in DeKalb, IL a few years earlier. This dance captures my experiences that first night. The first dance I danced was De'il Amang the Tailors, which is reflected in bars 1-8. Later that night the more experienced dancers danced Mairi's Wedding as a demo for us newcomers. It was that dance that hooked me on Scottish Country Dancing - I wanted to dance that dance! And bars 17-32 are Mairi's Wedding reels as I prefer to dance them.
