Quality (of the dancing)
Good (What does this mean?)

The music is Miss Gibson's Strathspey by Donaldson, Gaddis, et. al. from the CD "Memories of Scottish Weekend" (SW01).

During the 3rd round of the dance the reel goes south in a serious way (at 2:44 in). The dancers regroup at the end of the phrase and continue without any other major errors.
