Jacqui's Dolphin Yey

Jacqui's Dolphin Yey is a New England Contra Dance. It was devised by Seth Tepfer in 2018. It is a Becket dance. It is a multipart dance. The minor set lasts 32 bars.

Written for Jacqui Grennan

The tune named Tom Kruskal's, was composed by Amelia Mason & Emily Troll, and performed by Bonnie Insull, and Susan McNeil.

The animation plays at 103 counts per minute normally, but the first time through the set the dance is slowed down so people can learn the moves more readily (no music plays during this slow set). 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: gypsy, circle, hey, dolphin hey, swing (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.
