Tracks:

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: Treasures of Terpsichore (1st Ed), Treasures of Terspichore
Authority: Wilson, Thomas
Year: 1809
Tune: Miss Jean Robertson's Reel
Notes: This dance could be adapted to 32 bars, perhaps with the addition of setting before the circles, and a cast.
