Inspired by Keith Rose's Crib Diagrams.
Among the Cheviot Hills is a Scottish Country Dance. It was devised by John Cahill in 2016 and published in Celebrating 50 Years (RSCDS Los Angeles). It is a proper 3 Couple Longways dance. In this dance the couples are permuted by: 312. J32
The Cheviot Hills are on the English/Scottish border, but they also refer to a neighborhood on the west of Los Angeles (south of Bevery Hills)
The animation plays at 120 counts per minute normally, but the first time through the set the dance is slowed down so people can learn the moves more readily. Men are drawn as rectangles, women as ellipses. Each couple is drawn in its own color, however the border of each dancer indicates what role they currently play so the border color may change each time through the minor set.
The dance contains the following figures: hand turn (allemande), set, figure eight, hey, mirror hey, petronella (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.
