The last RSCDS dance I went to in Cambridge included (as far as I can remember)
a number of dances from the early books that aren't done elsewhere, but that
were pleasant to dance. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening, and was grateful for
the opportunity to dance some dances that I don't come across elsewhere.
