In a ceilidh situation there will be a number of simplifications, some of which are shown in the RSCDS video. In particular:
1-4 1s take both hands and use slip step to dance down.
29-32 1s turn with birl hold (right arms in elbow grip, left hands held securely above right hands) and using a birl step (a modified version of slip step in which the right foot, almost touching partner's, does not close to the left foot but instead moves only minimally so that the couple rotate).
The dance can readily be performed in a 4-couple set with 4th couple stationary until bars 31-32 when they step up with the 3rd couple.
In a more extreme ceilidh form, alluded to in the deviser's voiceover of the third repeat of the RSCDS video but not shown, skip change (and even slip step in the hands round) may be replaced by walking, one right and one left step to each bar of music; similarly, the pas-de-basque setting step may be replaced by a simplified hopping onto the right and then the left foot.
