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: Twelve Selected Country Dances for the Year 1772
Authority: Rutherford, John
Year: 1772
Tune: The Machine without Horses
Notes: This dance is named after Moore's c.1768 'Machine without Horses'. It involved 'the quick working of a man's feet upon some iron springs', and could travel several miles at great speed on suitable terrain. Similar machines were invented by Misters Ladd and Vevers around the same time.
