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
