Wrexham Square

Wrexham Square is an English Country Dance. It was devised by Bernard Bentley in 1993 and published in The Fallibroome Garden. It is a Square dance. There is no progression in this dance. It is a USA dance. The dance lasts 240 bars. Someone thought this dance was Very Hard.

Note: Bentley used Playford's way of numbering couples, which goes clockwise from the 1st couple. I use the modern square dancing numbering which goes counter-clockwise. If you look up the original and see a discrepancy in III.D, this is why.

The animation plays at 120 counts per minute. Men are drawn as rectangles, women as ellipses. Each couple is drawn in its own color.

The dance contains the following figures: USA, hand turn (allemande), set, turn single, circle, lead, hands across, hey, rights and lefts, siding, arming (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.
