Dance InformationThis strathspey was devised for Holly Boyd's husband, Don Nemiroff, on his birthday.
The deviser has named the figure in the first 8 bars The Maurice Progression. It was inspired by the dance Maurice (published in Dunsmuir Dances) written by Gary Thomas in memory of Maurice Whitby of the Montreal Branch.
(Dance information by the deviser, Holly Boyd)
