I remember doing the jig in competitions in the late 50's. It was common
enough at that time here in Canada at least (or as common as is possible
with such low numbers of boys dancing as then was the case). I also remember
dancing it in competition in Scotland but I have some vague recollection
that it may not have been as common over there.
