Celtic Brooch Set

The Celtic Brooch Set

At the Start and Finish of every 32-bar sequence in any of The Celtic Brooch dances. It is clear there is no Progression in this Set format since the numbered Places of the Dancers in the Full set and the Active set are the same.

Note that the numbered Places of the Dancers in the Full set (the Places in which they Started the dance) are shown as 1 2 3, i.e., in Times New Roman font in the upper left part of the Dancer's symbol; their numbered Places in the Active set (the Places in which they Started the Repeat) are shown as 1 2 3, i.e., in Helvetica font in the lower right part.
