Reverse Reel Of Four
The Reverse reel of four
is a rare form, each dancer follows a path which is the reverse of the standard form, i.e., with an anticlockwise loop at each End
and passing each other By the right
at the midpoint.
Although this Scottish Country Dance form can, in principle, exist as the reverse of any standard form as, for example, in bars 21-24 of Mrs Stewart of Fasnacloich, in which the Half diagonal reel of four is reversed, the Figure has distinctive merit only in Mirror reels of four.
For example, here are some Scottish Country Dances in which the term, Reverse Reel Of Four
, is used in either the MiniCrib or the MaxiCrib Dance instructions
or both -
North To Inverness
Tammie Norie Jig
