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 continued.  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.  And for the continuation in B2 it's the same again, in the same direction.  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.
