A Grand Starry Night

Author:  Ron Coxall, from "Jogs" (copyright Cotswold Music Society, used with permission).
Formation: Sicilian circle
Difficulty:  3
Style:  English

A1: Circle left and right.
A2: Ladies' chain.
B1: Left hand star; Grand Star.
B2: Grand Star.  Do-si-do person opposite.

Grand Star: Do half a right-hand star in your current four, then do half a left hand star with the next couple.  Women follow their partner in each star.

"The ordinary left hand star should be stressed as people get so excited by the Grand Star they forget it." - Ron Coxall's notes.
