My Lady Winwood's Maggot ~ Sharp is an English Country Dance. It was published by Playford (John Young) in 1726 in The Dancing Master, The Third Volume, 2nd ed.. It was interpreted by Cecil Sharp in 1916 and published in The Country Dance Book (Part 4). It is a proper Triple Minor dance. The dance lasts 30 bars.
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 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), set, circle, cast, lead, figure eight (and probably others).
