Devised October 2006 in Wellington ...

Devised October 2006 in Wellington as a teaching dance for Corners Pass and Turn. Most Strathspey with that formation seem quite difficult. Modified 3 December 2010, after a suggestion of Romaine Butterfield, namely the stepping up/down of the third couple, which makes the phrasing easier. The dance was inspired by the tune it is named after, "Miss Leslie Cunningham" by Muriel Johnston. This tune can be found as part of a Muriel Johnston set for the Strathspey "The Marquis of Lorne" track 3 of "A Dancer's Miscellany, Vol. 4", or part of the set for "John Derek Evans", in "Dancing Fingers, Vol 3" track 9. A suitable alternative Strathspey would be "The Armstrong's Rant" as recorded by Bobby Brown on "H.I.S.C.D", track 3.
