Scottish Country Dancing Dictionary

Quick Turn

A Quick turn uses the Quick turn grip; it is essential when Time is short.

In less formal Scottish country dancing situations, Elbow grip or the Birl hold are equally appropriate.

For example, here are some Scottish Country Dances in which the term, Quick turn, is used in either the MiniCrib or the MaxiCrib Dance instructions or both -
Hand In Hand
Katie's Ceilidh
Mairi's Wedding
Postie's Jig
White Heather Jig
