April 2020 (during COVID-19 social distancing)
Shortways set for one or two dancers
Music: Wa' Is Me, What Mun I Do? (3/4, in Barnes II)
Set left, then right, circle left once and 3/4 [ending one place right of home]
Set left, then right, circle left once and 3/4 [ending progressed and improper]
Fall back (3 steps) and advance (3)
Two single steps to the left around the ring [ending one place left of where you were]
Lead away (3 steps), turn, and lead back (3)
Cast one place over right shoulder [ending home]
Advance and retire on the diagonal; then retire and advance on same diagonal.
Three changes of a circular hey and face back in.
This adaptation is almost identical to the ladies' role in the real dance. Each time through the dance progresses the dancer one place down or up the same line. So if you start in first lady position, the next time through you dance from second lady position, and back and forth.
The instructions work from the gent's side of the set as well. Those used to dancing the gent's role just have to remember that they are moving on both A parts.
The circling in the A parts takes 18 beats. If you like, break it down into a narrow circle 3/4 in six steps and a more expansive circle all the way around in 12 steps.
