Choreographers note:- Though the dance is slow and short, the inclusion of ‘hesitations’, heavily turned Tags
and general timing means that this dance is suitable for dancers who have just moved up to Intermediate from
Advanced Beginner level. The dance also ‘travels’ – so allow room.
The song, from the Outer Hebrides is over 120 years old and is perfectly matched to Soprano Judith Durham.
Always remember - 'The beat may reach your feet - but the rhythm should electrify your soul'.
Dance starts after the short 9 second intro, with the vocals. Weight on left.
