Mad For You

Mad For You is a New England Contra Dance. It was devised by Vic Ceder in 2019. It is a Short Waves dance. The dance lasts 32 bars.

This dance was introduced to the world at the Santa Barbara Contra Dance,27 Jan 2019. It was Vic's second time calling a Contra, and the first time hecalled one of his own dances.

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: hand turn (allemande), mad robin, allemande round, ladies chain (courtesy turn), swing through (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.
