Genet's Recall ~ Triple

Genet's Recall ~ Duple Genet's Recall ~ Triple

Genet's Recall ~ Triple is an American Country Dance. It is a traditional dance with no clear origin. It was interpreted by Ralph Page in about 1965. Found in Cracking Chestnuts. It is a proper Triple Minor dance. The dance lasts 32 bars.

The book, Cracking Chestnuts, gives the last figure of the dance as "right and left through, over and back". This produces an unexpected same-sex courtesy turn. The CDSS website says "right and left four", which seems a better choice for a proper dance.

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: cast, lead, lead and cast (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.
