(As someone used to say) - I have just looked again at my 2 copies of 101, and one is "January 1960", and the other is "October 1957 (with corrections)". Both editions state in the words that the dancing couple cast off on the wrong (opposite) side of the dance - presumably one of the "corrections", but the diagram in both editions still show the dancing couple casting off on their own sides to face corners! Perhaps that's another of the drawbacks to the teacher training process - it stops us having a relaxed attitude to the dance "details" ? Malcolm
