- Ivy used to categorise dances ...
Ivy used to categorise dances by their title as 'male' or 'female' in order to remember who "went first". For example, "General Stuart's Reel" is 'male' and the man starts the dance. When discussing "The Wood of Fyvie", published by Jack McConachie, Ivy indicated it was a 'female' dance because "Fyvie includes Ivy." That comment is the inspiration for this dance. The women always dance in front of their partner and15t woman begins the sequence starting at bar 17.
