    Re: dances for 3 cpl sets? Was Re: favourite books

    We used the tune to death in Baton Rouge because we only had three
    couples for quite sometime.  But we never did learn the dance
    Bonnie Anne.
     
    As for three couple dances, the list IS huge!  I recommend one
    that the first couple doesn't immediately interact with the second
    couple because you'll have third couple stepping up and firsts casting
    after the first repetition.  So things like Reel of the Royal
    Scots and Maxwell's Rant can be troublesome (but certainly not
    impossible) with only three couples.  I'll second Wendy's
    suggestion of Flight of the Falcon.

    All the (old) recordings for Bonnie Anne are other good sources for
    3x32 Jig sets.  Does anybody still do Bonnie Anne?
