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:

 
Authority: Playford
Year: 1650 circa
Notes: The form of this dance is: a change, the figure, a change, the figure, a change, the figure. For this reason the whole dance is shown, not just the first cycle.
