Emerald Isle

Emerald Isle is a New England Contra Dance. It was devised by Gary Roodman in 1999 and published in Multiple Calculated Figures. It is a Becket dance. There is no progression in this dance. The dance lasts 32 bars.

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: set, turn single, gypsy, hands across, hey, hey for four, right and left through (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.
