It would seem that all they need do is remind themselves to behave as Miss
Milligan would have done in the same situation. I have to agree with one of
the previous writers about the fact that we are in Scottish Country Dance to
have fun and enjoy ourselves. Manners and refined genteel behavior should be
modeled by the examiners, tutors and especially the examinee. However, that
quality may just be what the examiner is testing in the examinee to see what
she/he is made of. If you can keep your composure and cool under a very
stressful situation then you shouldn't loose your cool in a class with
several dozen trying personalities. I know there are times when I have to
fight my own temper as a student in a SCD class when I'm tired and I don't
agree with what I'm being told, etc.
