That's actually quite interesting as it assumes that one would know (or
be able to find out) what the original context was.

My copy of Miss Milligan's Miscellany Vol.1 has no publication date and
no information about the origins of "Quadrille Country Dance". The
Manual says nothing to the purpose either. TACNotes describes the entry
into the poussette from positions "in the middle" (but it does at least
tell you how to get there).

Now I know that I bought both MMMI and "Won't You Join the Dance" (with
the offset starting position for the poussette) in 1977 so I would be
able to figure it all out eventually but it wouldn't be so easy for
someone who only knew the Manual.

Out of curiosity, Coletta - how did you teach it at the exam ? Did
anyone comment on what you did (which must have been fine seeing you
passed) ?
