Set Advancing And Retire
In Set advancing and retire
the specified Scottish Country Dancers approach each other and then return to their Starting Positions
using a Setting step
This is the same movement as the much more common Advance and retire but using a Setting step instead of a Travelling Step.
The Figure is usually allocated one complete step (2 bars for Pas-de-basque or the Strathspey setting step).
For example, here are some Scottish Country Dances in which the term, Set advancing and retire
, is used in either the MiniCrib or the MaxiCrib Dance instructions
or both -
