This dance is usually danced to its own tune.
This dance has many variants: for example starting by balancing in a ring and then turning means all
will finish the opening twirls home and we can avoid the twos having to run for it as the ones lead down.
The RSCDS claim this as a Scottish Dance -- they have it as dance 1 of book 1.
