It seems to me that one of the uses of "Strathspey" is that you
can ask for help in circumstances like this - either use the
big data base, if you have the correct software (I don't), or put
out a general query - IMHO the first question should be "can you
tell me the source" (maybe the teacher does have the instructions, but
doesn't know it - I finished up assembling my own data base of dances
for which I did have the instructions just to solve this problem; it
was so embarrassing to tell people I had never heard of a dance, only
to find it several weeks later when I was looking for something else.)

The second question, depending on the degree of urgency, is "Can
you please let me have the instructions?" - (and I'm sure someone
will help - its up to your conscience then in whether you buy the
original instructions, say from TACBooks.)

On this topic, I have hand written instructions, which I think
I obtained from "Strathspey", for a dance called Indian River Strathspey;
I have written "Senyk" as the deviser; can anyone let me know
whether I have the right deviser, and if so how to contact them?

Thanks

Malcolm
