This dance is reconstructed from an authentic source as noted above, but you might encounter it being taught in a different fashion. Popular dances were often published more than once, sometimes with different figures, or even with different tunes; our version is faithfully reconstructed and historically informed, but alternative arrangements can be equally satisfying


Further Information:

 
Source: Campbell's 22nd Book of New and Favorite Country Dances & Strathspey Reels
Authority: Campbell, William
Year: 1807 circa
Tune: The Russian Ambassador's Waltz
Notes: This dance is subtitled 'With the Original German Figure'. Campbell described the waltz figure as The 1st Gent Set to the 2d Lady, & both go quite Round with his Right hand Round the Lady's Waist; & the Lady's Left hand Round the Gent's Waist at the Same time; the Gent takes the Lady with his Left hand by her Right hand.
