Hugh Foss and reels of three

Message 10511 · Susanna Mayr · 2 Feb 1998 11:07:45 · Top

Hugh Foss' thoughts on reels of three can be found in "We Agree to
Differ", chapter 2, "The Reel of Three Perplexes Me"; and "Sundry
Writings Anent Scottish Dancing", in a section about "Phrasing and
Teamwork", originally published in February 1948 in "The Crier" (Chelsea
Reel Club ?).
I have three booklets by Hugh Foss, bought a long time ago (I don't know
whether they are still available anywhere): the ones mentioned above
plus "Notes on Evolution in S.C.D.", and "Roll Back the Carpet" which is
published together with "We Agree to Differ". I recommend them as
fascinating and thought-provoking reading for anyone interested in
S.C.D.

And then there is the description (anonymous but generally
attributed to Hugh Foss) which was published in The Reel a number
of years ago.

> A reel of three comprises three people dancing a figure of eight
> in the same space at the same time - Be Bloody, Bold and Resolute!
