Quality (of the dancing)
Informal/Social (RSCDS) (What does this mean?)

Apart from a variety of individual dancers mistakes, the version of the dance being performed here seems to consistently differ from that described in crib and diagram in several places:
- in bars 3-4 1st and 4th couples here set on the sides and turn more than once RH instead of petronella and half turning RH;
- at bar 32 1st and 4th men do not end the reel of four across by taking RH;
- in bars 33-36 1st and 4th couples dance half way round in promenade hold instead of forming one line.
NB John Drewry revised this dance but the video shows another variation, neither the original or revised versions.
