    Dear All,
    
    I probably ought to ask Linda Lieberman this question, but I'll toss 
    it out here.  Forgive me if I'm just incapable of finding dances on my own.
    
    I'm looking for dances that include the following figure (and I 
    suspect it is a small number):
    
    At *some* point in the dance, the first couple dances down, picking 
    up second lady as they go by: 2L-1M-1L.  As they are dancing down, 
    second man follows behind first man.  They all turn over their 
    (right?) shoulders and dance up the line of the dance, the two ladies 
    stepping forward to be on either side of second man, with first man 
    now trailing.  I don't recall how the figure ends, as there might be 
    several ways to finish.
    
    If anyone might point me towards dances with this figure, I would be 
    grateful.  Thank you.  (Suggestions on how to search for this stuff 
    would also be appreciated)
    
    Victor

    Victor,
     
    If it was the second man leading down with the two ladies and the  first man 
    trailing, and the men reversing roles on the way back up, I would  think of 
    The Glasgow Highlanders.  If it was first man leading  the ladies down with 
    second man in front of them, dancing backwards, and the men  reversing roles on 
    the way back, I would think of The Royal Albert Country  Dance.  But I cannot 
    off the top of my head think of any dance that exactly  fits your description. 
     
    I hope that helps, anyway,
     
    Chris, New York.

    Victor,
    
    Possibly "The Triumph"?

    That's the one I was thinking of too!
    
    Oh, and I don't like that dance much, either.  :-)

    Sounds like Glasgow Highlanders.
    Do you need a copy of the original instructions?  If so mail me.
    Regards,
    Wesley
