Deviser’s note: Although this is a 64-bar dance, the music is specified as 6 x 32 because it is really a 32-bar dance with a twist in the repeat. After 32 bars 1st couple is ready to “repeat, having passed a couple,” but the repeat is danced as if the set were turned upside down.

From the Deviser. “The tempest figure was inspired by a friend’s science demonstration. Take a cup of black tea, stir it briskly until a whirlpool forms, remove the spoon, pour a small amount of milk into the center of the cup, and observe. This also works with a mug of coffee.”
