I agree with Ron - looks complicated but quite easy to teach and get a lo=
t
of fun doing.

There is a recording of the Music suitable for dancing, but it is on an o=
ld
record - I have a tape with it recorded.

If you get the CD 'Kardinia Capers', the 'Demonstration Medley #1' has th=
e
tune as the first part, in a form suitable for this dance and very
danceable.

Glasgow City Police is a 5 couple dance in the form of a canon. I=
t =

was devised by John Mitchell and can be found in one of the =

Whetherly Books. It is very popular in these parts and is a great =

change from the usual format. It seems difficult but one is =

surprised it is over so quickly. Well worth a try.

Cheers, Ron :)<
