12-step dances (was Test)

Lee,

I'm not acquainted with Molly Connell, but John Drewry
has published a dance in 12-bar phrases called "Auld
Mistress MacIntosh", to the song tune also known as
"The Lum Hat Wanting a Croon". We use it in
performance, but I wouldn't recommend it for social
programs as it is in a double circle arrangement and
is quite strenuous. The dance basically consists of
8-bar phrases punctuated by a 4-bar chorus of setting
steps.

-Alan Twhigg.
