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

Various versions of this dance exist. This video, the final part of a longer demo, shows a 32-bar version, twice through; the men dancing the figure of 8 round the women the first time, the women dancing the figure the second time. After the arches all couples set. The music and the dancing are not precisely in sync.

All look R, join that new partner (with whom they just passed Rsh) and birl, finishing in the large circle.

(Devisers’ note: as originally published the M moved inside on [29-32]. Then they can’t hold the arches for [33-36])
