"For those trying the new dances - I believe there is an error in "Forty-five years on"
bars 9-16 - last sentence reads"… and 4th man, followed by 1st man, passes 3rd man by the right."
I believe that it was intended to read
"and 1st man, followed by 4th man, passes 3rd man by the right."
At that point in the dance I have the order of the dancers as 2 4 1 3 all on
own sides, 4th & 1st ladies facing up and 4th and 1st men facing down which
puts 1st man in the lead not 4th man."


Well spotted Peter - I am sure you are correct.

bars 7-8

As Peter says, the order of the dancers is 2 4 1 3. According to RSDCS Standard Terminology booklet, bars 7-8 should read "4th and 1st couples set", not 1st and 4th couples set.

I agree with your rant too.

Now my rant

In response to members demands RSCDS Membership Services Committee is planning to publish a book of dances with music in 2010. However we will have to purchase it - it will not be a Subscripion Copy as was traditional with the previous books of dances.
