The only one which might cause such recollection, as far as I know,
is Derek Haynes' reel The Eight of Diamonds from the Fifth Carnforth
book..
It is an extension from his 5x32 reel Domino Five (4th
Carnforth) for five dancers and is just as simple (well almost) and -
with the right music - just as much fun. Everyone seems to enjoy it.
I often use it to finish a class and send everyone home smiling.
Happy Dancing
Cheers :)
