Hi Dianna
Here is my crib for The Red Balloon. It is from one of the Croydon
Books and is not difficult but some of the angles need concentration.
Sylvia Edie runs classes in the Croydon area.

THE RED BALOON
by Sylvia Edie
J40-4c-4c N 209-6

1- 8 1s dance B2B, then set & cast one pl.- 2s up.
9-16 1s dance 2x 1/2 Rs3 across. In the first give RSh to C2s & in
the second give RSh to C1s (who are now on Xside). Cs dance a
full reel.
17-24 1s repeat bars 1-8 - 3s up.
25-32 1s repeat bars 9-16 with 3s & 4s.
33-40 1s set & cast to 4th pl. - 4s up. All 4Cs turn P. RH
----------------------------------------------

With one class I ran it through first in Strathspey time before
using full jig-time.
I'm afraid I cannot find the book so cannot give the recommended
tune. I do not think it has an own tune.

Cheers, Ron :)
