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

Demonstration at the Oxford Cambridge Highland Ball 2019. Twice through as part of a longer demo. The last 8 bars of the 1st repeat are adapted to change the orientation of the set and the end of the 2nd repeat is also changed to lead into the next dance in the demo.
