I have been looking at Couteraller's Rant in book 34 and would appreciate
hearing opinions on how 1st couple dances the cast in bars 17--24. That
is, the instructions say 1st couple joining nearer hands dance down the
middle one step and up one step, cast off one place on own sides..... Do
first couple begin the cast from the middle of the dance facing down? If
so, do they still cast over the outside shoulder? (or just head out the
set?) Or do 1s finish in place, then cast as usual?
This looks to be an interesting dance, and I would like to try it.
