My original goal was to ...

My original goal was to create a dance named Chaos Reigns that seemed to be complicated, but from which order formed at bar 32 with everyone changing partners, ala Caddam Wood; however in this dance people are back with partners after the second time through and, thus, don’t dance with everyone else. When this dance occurred to me, the ending figure seemed so much like a computer bubble sort that I renamed the dance. It isn’t clear to me whether the figure in bars 17-24 can be danced in reel time; if it can, this dance is actually a better reel than a strathspey. If the figure doesn’t work in reel time, then Fill the Fetters is strong strathspey music that easily carries the dance.
