Most workshops I attend never mention a hop in connection with the
strathspey traveling step. Our teacher states there is no hop in a
strathspey traveling step. As soon as the dancing starts - there it is -
skip, hop, elevation, merely clearing the floor, whatever.

Sometimes I think a series of new videos on "standardized Scottish country
dancing" would be a good thing. There would still probably be seven
slightly different ways to do any particular step or formation, but at least
we would know the current "standard" way of doing them.

...The manual uses the word 'hop'.
What are others doing?...
