St Lawrence Jig Author: Ralph Page: Zesty Contras, 1983
Formation: Longways, American contra dance
Longways duple improperA1:
Allemande left with neighbour; 1s swing in centre to end facing down between the 2s. End the swing with the woman on right, which should put 1s in the middle between the 2s.A2:
All down the centre, four in line, turn towards neighbour. Lead back, ones hand cast round twos.B1:
Rights and Lefts all the way through.B2:
Lines forward and back; right hand star.
The 2's don't get much to do, so it's better to have several short sets rather than one long set, to give everyone a chance to be a first-couple.
Music: 32-bar jigs or reels
