Lambs on Green Hill is an English Country Dance. It was devised by Dan Seppeler in 2011. It is a proper Duple Minor dance. The dance lasts 32 bars.
The deviser provides two notes:
1) In A1/A2 it takes two bars to fall back into partner's place.
2)Here "allemande" means: join right hands, balance forward and back and change places, woman twirling under man's arm (box the gnat)
My note is that the half figure 8s in the A sections are very quick.
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.
An online description of the dance may be found here.
The dance contains the following figures: hand turn (allemande), circle, cast, lead, figure eight, box the gnat, allemande round (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.
