Put in All

Put in All is an English Country Dance. It was published by Playford (John Young) in 1710 in The Dancing Master, Vol. the Second. It was interpreted by Bernard Bentley in 1965. It is a proper Duple Minor dance. The dance lasts 28 bars.

Playford writes:
Note: Each Strain is to be play'd twice over.
The first Man go to the second Woman, and take her by the Left-hand with his Right, and turn her into his Place, the cast off into hers · The second Man do the like with the first Woman, and fall into her Place : The first Couple cast up and turn Hands till they are in their own Places, and the secsnd Couple slip down thro' the third Couple at the same Time and cast up, and turn Hands till they are in their own Places · The all four Right and Left quite round, and the first Couple cast off :

Originally a triple minor.

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), turn single, turn single cloverleaf, 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.
