Help: Miss Drumbeck

Message 18757 · mlbrown · 19 Sep 1999 15:53:37 · Top

Greetings;

Last Friday I decided that we do the dance "Miss Dumbreck" - book 25, partly
because we now had the CD for book 25. Like most of the dances from this book it
is some time since I have been taught this dance, and my memory is a fit foggy.
My question arises from a lack of clarity at bar 12 - I have a memory that one
uses 3 skip change to dance to "revolve", and one pas de basque to turn round -
but I can find no written evidence of this, and it flows better using skip
change. Does anyone out there have any "authenticated" views, please?
(I have even looked in my original notebook from the time I started dancing, and
even that only mentions the 3 skip change!)

By the way the dance was a "hoot" - it was difficult to criticise the way the
dancers were dancing the Poussette as half of them were doubled up in hysterics!
I'm not sure where this fits in with "dancing with Joy".

Malcolm
