My Lady Winwood's Maggot ~ Pat Shaw is an English Country Dance. It was published by Playford (John Young) (website) in 1726 in The Dancing Master, The Third Volume, 2nd ed.. It was interpreted by Pat Shaw (website) in 1960 and published in Another Look at Playford. Originally a Triple Minor this version is a proper 3 Couple Longways dance. In this dance the couples are permuted by: 312. The minor set lasts 16 bars.

Playford writes:

The first Couple Sett and cast off, and lead through the third Couple Then the first Man goes the whole Figure with the third Couple, and his Partner with the second at the same time, being in the second Couples place Then Hands all six quite round, and all Back to Back Partners, then the first Couple lead through the third Couple, and through the second, and turn your Partner.

The tune was published with the dance.

The animation plays at 111 counts per minute normally, but the first time through the set the dance is slowed down so people can learn the moves more readily (no music plays during this slow set). 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, cast, lead, hey, lead and cast (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.
