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: Gentlemen and Ladies Companion
Authority: Griffiths, John
Year: 1798
Notes: Note: the final figure is 'half right and left' in the original. The meaning of this figure changed over time, the arrangement used here was popular during the 1810s.
