When we traveled through Scotland, my husband and I began a tradition of enjoying our new surroundings each day by having ‘a wee dram before tea’. It was very relaxing – like this dance.

I was able to use this dance with my beginners by adapting it slightly. I wanted a dance with a two couple allemande but no other figures. I changed bars 17-24 and had 3 couple sets. Adapted 17 -24: 1st couple set, dance in and up between 2nd couple, cast to 2nd place and dance between 3rd couple to end in 3rd place. I told the class how and why I had adapted it and said that once they were confident with the allemande we could then do the dance as written. They enjoyed it very much
