Money in Both Pockets is an English Country Dance. It was devised by a dance fan in 1792. It was interpreted by Christian in 2015. Mentioned in the article A Trip to Netherfield. It is a proper Duple Minor dance. The minor set lasts 32 bars. Someone thought this dance was Easy.
This is almost the same as Maid of the Mill, Shepley, ~1795 (Massachusetts).
The 1st & 2d Cus foot it & change sides Foot it & change sides back again Lead down the middle up again & cast off · Right & left at top ··
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: set, circle, cast, lead, hey, rights and lefts (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.
