The Library of Birmingham is a Scottish Country Dance. It was devised by Kenneth J Reid in 2015 and published in RSCDS Book 49. It is a proper 4 Couple Longways dance. In this dance the couples are permuted by: 2413. St40Someone thought this dance was Hard.
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, set and link, allemande round (and probably others).
