Elaine, if you're familiar with this way to dance Speed the Plough
could you clarify for me the timing of the last 8 bars? It looks like
2 bars to get from second corner to the other end of the set and then
4 bars to set and 4 bars to turn twice round and 'throw' partner out
to place. Since that totals 10 bars, I'm figuring I must be
miscounting somewhere -- but the demo is so clear and I keep ending up
with a 34 bar dance. I echo the wish that they had included a video
of them actually dancing it. Oh well. (Mick Jagger said it best)
