It can be a fun thing to do as a couple, or you can come by yourself and find a partner there.
So what's it like?
Here's the view from the musicians on stage. One or two lines of couples form, and follow the directions of the caller.
Here caller Ray Polhemus has already led the dancers to the point that they can continue the dance without instruction.
Some of the dance figures are in stars or rings, but the start and end position is a line, as in the Virginia Reel.
The result is fun.
Come and try it...
