Devised 4/3/2020, as a relatively simple fugal dance with the movement of “Ladies of Dunse” as a basis. Note also that it is a palindrome, so I could have called it the “The Palindrome of Dunse”. Whilst it is not difficult, the dancers will need to concentrate like they do with e.g. “The Stow Alert”. The tandem figure of eight movements need the leading couples not to be tardy. Recommended tune is “The Dancing Master” and a good recording is from the CD “Jig for Joy” from the Music Makars.
