Yes, Elaine, it has been discussed a few times - but I'll bet some of us are game for rehashing that topic. To keep from beating a dead horse, we could limit the discussion to the CD accompanying the new RSCDS book. Anyone?
Sorry - couldn't resist taking the bait...
Temporarily in Arlington, VA, where the dancing is fabulous.

Thank you so much, Adriana, for the original instructions (sent privately).
It's true that the dance is nothing special, choreographically. I've placed
it on a social program here in Ottawa because I've heard the set that the
band we have booked will play, and the music is smashing. Personally, I
would dance anything to that music. I think this topic has been discussed a
few times on the strathspey list: music can make or break a dance.
