Set And Link For 2 Couples
This is a simplified version of Set and link
with only two Dancers
in the Starting
a similar line:
Taking hands in the lines, all Set Facing the Dancers in the other line;
The Dancers at the left End of each line Dance In, Pulling right shoulder back, to Finish at the other End of the same line
the Dancers at the right End of each line Cast, Pulling right shoulder back, to Finish at the other End of the same line.
Most commonly, all start in the Sidelines and Finish Facing In as, for example, for 1st and 2nd couples in bars 17-20 of The Honeysuckle And The Bindweed (Bradley) where it is used as a Progression. However, the Figure can start with the Dancers in lines Across the set, Facing Up and down, and Finishing to suit the next Figure.
There is a derivative form of Set and link for 2 couples On the sides
in bars 1-4 of Cullen Skink
with 2nd couple
and also 3rd
with 4th couple
each perform the Figure On the sides
but, instead of Finishing
in the natural order 2143
, the End Couples Pass
each other to Finish
in the order 2413
