Turn And Cast
Although Turn and cast
is no more than a combination of Turn
(By the right
) followed by Cast
individually (one Place
) on Own side
, it is important as a common movement by the 1st Couple
to establish the Progression
in a 3 Couple Longwise
, Active Set
as, for example, in bars 1-4 of Mairi's Wedding
2nd Couple usually Step up during the Casting; if so, it will almost always be necessary for them to use the form of Stepping up shown in the diagram (the right foot version as would apply for the Lady in a Longwise Set) since Turning and returning to Place (even though Facing Out) in only 2 bars is demanding for 1st Couple.
Stepping to the Right: with diagonal forward travel in order to help another couple when time is short.
For example, here are some Scottish Country Dances in which the term, Turn And Cast
, is used in either the MiniCrib or the MaxiCrib Dance instructions
or both -
