    Re: Dolphin reels revisited

    But there's no kind of bike where the back becomes the front every couple of 
    bars, is there?
    If I heard someone say "reels of three in tandem" or something, I'd go for 
    the follow-the-leader option.  How does "dolphin" even suggest swapping 
    over?
    I guess technically, the dancing couple are each doing parallel reels of 
    three on the same diagonal -- if the man begins in front, his reel is a 
    couple of steps longer at the end where he becomes the back, and a couple of 
    steps shorter when he becomes the front, and the lady's reel is similar but 
    at opposite ends.  However, "1C dance a reel of three in parallel on the 
    same axis" or something is stupidly daft.
    Fun, fun, fun!
