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: Annual Cambrian Trifles for 1812
Authority: Hart, W. Burton
Year: 1812
Tune: Clasemont or Miss Caroline Morris
Notes: Note: Hart used the term Gipsy to refer to the first figure. He explained it as: 'To Gipsy is, after crossing over 1 Cu. to pass your Partner back to back & cast up again turning your Partner with both hands to your own sides. NB. This is a fashionable and pretty Figure.'

The original figures are: The 1st couple cross over one couple and Gipsy. lead down the middle, up again; right & left at top.
