Christine's Conundrum

Christine's Conundrum is an English Country Dance. It was devised by Colin Hume (website) in 2001 and published in Colin Hume's Website. It is a Facing Couples Becket dance. There is no progression in this dance. The dance lasts 168 bars. Someone thought this dance was Very Hard.

In this dance the A and B strains are partly 2 counts per bar and partly 3 counts.

Colin Hume composed this music for his dance Christine's Waltz in 2001.

The animation plays at 100 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: hand turn (allemande), set, turn single, gypsy, circle, cast, lead, figure eight, hands across, poussette, hey, circular hey, star promenade, back to back (and probably others).
