Here's what's coming up This coming Sunday at 3 pm:

One of the dances we are going to do shall be "Irish Lamentations", a lovely slow duple minor dance in 3/4 time.

For anyone who wants to preview it, or just review it:
Here is a video to look at.

and Here are the instructions:
Irish Lamentation

A1 Take hands 4, all step set 2X to L & R

1M and 2W turn 2 hands to places

A2 repeat and 2nd corners turn

B1 1-4 all move up set and face own wall (1/2 turn away from partner)

take inside hands on sides for assisted cast up to progress

5-8 all move down and set and 1st couple assisted cast up to

original places

9-16 1st couple cross and cast down, 1/2 figure of 8 up thru 2s

who lead up

B2 1-8 Face partner, 4 changes circular hey with hands

9-16 Ballroom hold, 1s and 2s dance round each other

We could also do "The Black Nag" because it's a dance for 3 couples which does not progress, i.e. everyone ends up in the same place they started. Go here for instructions & video:

As an experiment, I would LOVE to try Salamanca Castanets or even Mr. Beveridge's Maggot. They are beautiful dances, and can be learned bit by bit at whatever pace makes you comfortable.

Please write me back and let me know if you want instructions & videos on these.

Let's pay a social call like Jane Austen would have done had she had the internet at her disposal.
We can still all party like it's 1799!
