Comment

Circassian Circle is an old dance existing in many variations. This video shows 10 such variations, referred to as "Figures", each done once through. The dancing is excellent but as none of the variations demonstrated here are actually the one chosen by the RSCDS to include in Book 1 it is marked as "reasonable" due to the different choreography. Also, as it is intended as a round the room dance but is here done with two couples, they have to wheel round at the end of each figure to be ready for the next one. The comments attached to the youtube video provide more information (first in Italian, then in English).
