Dance In And Cast
is the popular alternative name for this modified form of Cast
from a Standing Position
in which the Dancers Face
each other, Advance, Pull back
the appropriate shoulder to Face Out
and Dance Out
to their Starting Position
(from Facing Out
) in the normal way.
Dance in and cast requires two more bars than the the more conventional form of Casting in order to accommodate the more open movement of the Figure; for example, in bars 41-44 of The Blacksmith of Elgin, 4 bars are allowed rather than 2 bars as would be normal for Casting one Place.
For example, here are some other Scottish Country Dances in which the term, Dance in and cast
or Cuddle cast
, is used in either the MiniCrib or the MaxiCrib Dance instructions
or both -
