Have a look at Fete Champetre - 128bar Jig. Straight through no repeats and
everyone only has 8 bars standing out! A supurb dance which flows
brilliantly and is great fun to dance - however it is also a tough dance to
master. It was danced as part of the Scottish Tattoo at the Royal Albert
Hall in April and our dem team had to work really hard to crack it. What a
buzz though when everyone got it for the first time.

Another dance we did at the tattoo, Tappie Toorie, has half Schiehallion
reels. This is a 96bar Reel and is also a tough but excellent dance.
