Line Dance for as many couples as will (facing up the hall)

Note: The dance does not follow specific beats and measure, but is done more freely.


Part I.

Lead up a Double and back. Repeat. 1st Couple cast off and lead down the outside, the rest following, then lead back up to your place.

Part II.

Arched Hey: All take hands, the 1st Couple facing down. 1st Couple goes under the 2nd Couple’s hands, then over the 3rd Couple, etc. All others follow, turning when you reach the end, and continuing until everyone is back to their original places.

Part III.

1st Couple turn each other by the right hand once and a half around. Then turn the 2nd (Opposite) person. Continue down the line, turning your Partner by the right hand and the others on your side by the left hand.

NOTE #1: In Part III, the Man has farther to turn than the Woman, so as you go down the line, the Woman should take her time.

NOTE #2: There are quite a few different tunes that this dance might use. Many local SCA groups use different tunes. The original used in Playford is commonly called “Tomorrow the Fox Will Come to Town.”
