>La Bastringue and the quadrilles.

To add confusion, LaBastringue is normally danced as the last figure in the
Quadrille de ste basil in quebec.

The Quadrille is typically two or three couples facing two or three
couples. (figures are similar to the Claire Plain Set or the Allegemeine
Francaise).. In the last figure, all dancers join into a larger set for the
finale.

Does this help, Mike?

I can bring the directions for the Quadrille to the Madison Scottish County
Dancers weekly dance held on the Campus of the University of Wisconsin
every Sunday evening (notice the plug!!).

Another Mike from Madison!
