Hey to the Jubilee is an English Country Dance. It was published by Johnson in about 1750 in Caledonian Country Dances: with a through bass for y hopsicord, book 2, London. It was interpreted by Pat Shaw (website) in 1964 and published in Another Look at Playford. It is a proper Triple Minor dance. The minor set lasts 32 bars.
First Man set to the 2d. Wo. and turn, then take at his Partner and turn 3 1st. Wo. the same 1st. Cu. cross over half figure and turn 3 and 3 Top and Bottom, go the whole figure Top and Bottom clap Partners and turn it out
The animation plays at 120 counts per minute normally, but the first time through the set the dance will often be 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, circle, lead, figure eight, hey, hey for three, cross go below (and probably others).
