Larkin Grace

Larkin Grace is a Scottish Country Dance. It was devised by Chris Sackett/Brooke Friendly (website) in 2005 and published in Impropriety Vol. 1. It is a Square dance. In this dance the couples are permuted by: 2341. St32

Originally conceived as a strathspey, the devisors say works equally well as a waltz (whereupon it becomes an English, rather than a Scottish Country Dance).

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), circle, lead, hands across, hey, parallel hey, hey for four (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.
