Cornish Six-Hand Reel
Start all in one line across the room, in sets of 3 couples facing down, men on left of partner as usual.A1:
All go 8 steps down; balance R and L twice, still facing down.A2:
Turn individually, 8 steps up, balance R and L twice facing up. Turn to face partner.B1 and 2:
Six-hand reel, all the way. Start passing right shoulders. End the reel when you face your partner again for the second time.C1:
Right hand turn partner; left hand turn partner. (slow turns.)C2:
Do-si-do partner; 2-hand turn partner. All face towards 1s (the couple on the caller's right).D1 and 2:
Double cast (1s turn left and all follow); 1s arch at the end and all go through to progressed places. Swing if time. End facing down.
Unusual in being danced across the usual line, so that in D1 and 2 the double cast is moving from caller's right to caller's left.
Pretty vigorous if you're stepping it (see the video link)
Music: 3 x 64 or 6 x 32 marches
