    more prone to painful twinges than my  left !"
     
    Ah!  Perhaps that's why my teacher preferred R L R hop, L R L hop  (with the 
    emphaisis on the first beat of each bar, as has been  mentioned.)   I don't 
    remember the steps being tiring, but I didn't  have hard shoes.    
     
    The teacher was a folk dance teacher from Northumberland, by the  way.  I 
    don't know if that would explain anything?
