Dance Information

This dance, Jeanette's Hornpipe, was devised in September, 1999 in Wellington, as a teaching dance to introduce 'set to and turn corners'.

Jeanette is a friend living in Wellington, New Zealand. We did our teaching certificates at much the same time.

The recommended tune is "Victoria Hornpipe".

Suitable music would be "Mr Wilson's Hornpipe," on "Scottish Dance Favourites" RSCDS CD
