We had a more relaxed evening on Monday as promised.
We only danced one dance that we had not previously covered. That was Turkey Trot a reel with a variation on hands across.
From 2nd place the first couple dance right hands across, lady up with the 2s and man down with the 3s then first couples swap ends and dance left hands across lady with the 3s and man with the 2s. This formation is commonly known as Teapots although this term is somewhat frowned upon by more formal tutors.
We then repeated a number of dances from previous weeks:
- Joie de Vivre
- Seann Triubhas Willichan – strathspey
- Mrs Stewart’s Jig
- The Wild Geese
- Deil amang the Tailors
These are all dances regularly seen at evening socials.
I was really impressed with how well you seemed to remembered the formations and dances from the previous weeks and there were really very few breakdowns so well done.
Next week we are going to start looking at reels of 3, that is 3 people dancing interlocking figures of 8.
