Idealized Reel Of Six

Reel Of Six Idealized

The arrow heads show the 24 successive, equally spaced Positions, each requiring half a bar, which, together, make up the full, idealized Reel of six; the Dancers' symbols show their most likely Starting (and Finishing) Positions for this idealized form. Each Dancer should reach the Position vacated by the Dancer immediately ahead of her/him on the path after 2 bars; this movement, repeated six times, completes the full Figure in 12 bars.
