    Re: Difference Between Briefing a dance and Recapping a Dance

    So, I am a tourist with 15 years' dance experience.  I arrive in a  town, ask 
    at the desk where I can find dancing, am told of a dance and rush off  after 
    dinner.  It won't be a very good experience if there is no briefing  because I 
    have been expected to look at the program in advance, or purchase a  crib 
    book in advance.
    And I will be a tourist hunting for some dancing in June.
    I also remember an evening in Hopetoun House, one of my first experiences  of 
    a Scottish evening (but I had lots of experience dancing).  I was 4th  couple 
    for Kingussie Flower.  I had a nodding acquaintance with the dance  and I 
    felt that as 4th woman, with an experienced partner, I would be ok.   I remember 
    everyone in the set reading their cribs, almost continuously, and not  one 
    couple was able to complete the dance without a mistake.
