There are lots of strathspeys out there that are well worth doing 8 times
Speaking as a musician, I hate it if a program of 18 dances includes only two
8x32 strathspeys, the balance consisting of 3x32 and 4x32 dances. Speaking as
a programme deviser, two of the six strathspey slots on our annual ball
programme are generally filled with a medley and a 3x32 strathspey (the
second-to-last dance, usually encored) but the others are 8x32 strathspeys. So
far we haven't had many complaints.
