Ah! Belinda is an English Country Dance. It was devised by Pat Shaw in about 1970 and published in New Wine in Old Bottles. It is a 6 Couple Longways dance with the 4s, 5s, 6s improper. There is no progression in this dance. It is a USA dance. The dance lasts 96 bars.
The animation plays at 120 counts per minute. Men are drawn as rectangles, women as ellipses. Each couple is drawn in its own color.
An online description of the dance may be found here.
The dance contains the following figures: USA, hand turn (allemande), set, circle, cast, lead, hands across, hey, mirror hey, circular hey (and probably others).
If you find what you believe to be a mistake in this animation, please leave a comment on youtube explaining what you believe to be wrong. If I agree with you I shall do my best to fix it.
