Well Done Jack (Scottish)

Well Done Jack (Scottish) is a Scottish Country Dance. It was devised by Nathaniel Kynaston in 1718 and published in RSCDS Book 29. It is a proper Triple Minor dance. J32

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.
