This is a crib line 




This dance is reconstructed from an authentic source as noted above, but you might encounter it being taught in a different fashion. Popular dances were often published more than once, sometimes with different figures, or even with different tunes; our version is faithfully reconstructed and historically informed, but alternative arrangements can be equally satisfying


Further Information:

 
Source: Book XVII 10 Favourite Cotillions, 8 Country Dances and 2 Minuets for 1784
Authority: Werner, Francis
Year: 1784
Tune: Savage Dance
Notes: Werner provided two sets of figures for this tune, we've animated the second set. A hand written copy of it was also found in the Austen family music collection, potentially copied by Jane Austen herself. Austen also used the second set of figures.
