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: Cahusac's Collection of Favourite Country Dances For The Year 1818
Authority: Cahusac, William Maurice
Year: 1818
Tune: The Feast of Roses
Notes: I've modified this dance from 32 bars to 36 bars. The original music begins with a 4 bar A strain followed by a 4 bar B strain for the initial circles; this sounded odd musically, so I repeated the A and added the B to the C strains for a 12 bar whole pousette. It might have been better to omit the B strain.
