Yes. It must be the obvious simplicity of the sequence (and, by
corollary, of the re-cap) that entices people to put the dance on social
programmes hereabouts.

On the other hand, I remember being booed and hissed at (as in `What the
h... do YOU think you're doing?') by the locals at one ball in the south
of the country for actually starting the set & turn corners in front of
first corner (as opposed to second place, own side), passing right
shoulders pass into the double triangles and so on. Personally I think
it's a nice dance (and a fun tune) but the set needs to know where to
go.
