A Grand Starry Night

Ron Coxall, from "Jogs" (copyright Cotswold Music Society, used with permission).

    •    A1: Circle left and right.
    •    A2: Ladies' chain.
    •    B1: Left hand star; Grand Star.
    •    B2: Grand Star. Do-si-do person opposite.
Grand Star: Do half a right-hand star in your current four, then do half a left hand star with the next couple. Women follow their partner in each star.

"The ordinary left hand star should be stressed as people get so excited by the Grand Star they forget it." - Ron Coxall's

Ron Coxall, from 'Roles'

Sicilian circle

    •    A1: In fours, circle left; do-si-do partner
    •    A2: right-hand star; do-si-do person opposite
    •    B1: take 2 hands with opposite person. Each linked couple goes 8 steps around either the inner or the outer circle, the women pushing and steering and the men trusting and hoping. Then two-hand swing, 2.5 or 3.5 times around.
    •    B2: Back the other way, women still steering, men still trusting. Swing own partner and turn to face new couple.
