We did this dance at our group meeting last night and got into some
argument about how it should be done. We've been doing it for some time,
and many of our group members are familiar with it from other places, but
no-one seems to have the original instructions, or indeed, ever to have
seen the original instructions. It's all word of mouth and memory.
Anyway, our questions are:
Bars 17-24 Do the ladies chase one place round, turn their partners and
then chase one more place round, ending having progressed a place, or do
the ladies chase half way round the circle each time, ending back in
Bars 25-32 Set and circle one place round? Circle two places round?
Circle half way round?
Various combinations of the above work in terms of the progression, but
what do the original instructions say.
PS Just for information, various combinations of the above do not work if
they are all being done by different people in the same set at the same
