    Difference Between Briefing a dance and Recapping a Dance

    In response to Susi Mayr question about the difference between briefing a  
    dance and recapping a dance: Briefing a dance would be the emcee giving  
    instructions as you would find them in a dance book: "On bars 1 - 8, first and  
    second couples dance rights and lefts.  On bars 9 -16, first couple dances  down 
    the middle and up to second place, with second couple stepping up on bars  11 
    and 12."
     
    Recapping a dance would just give little jogs to the memory: "Rights and  
    lefts followed by down the middle and up".
