Unless otherwise specified, Skip change applies in Quick tempo dances. Exceptionally, Pas-de-basque is prescribed for bars 3-4 and 7-8 of J.B. Milne; as also with Turn both hands in bars 11-12 of the same dance, completing the Turn in the prescribed 2 bars is demanding; fortunately, these Turns follow Set advancing in each case and so the Dancers can advantageously make some progress around each other in the left foot step of that preceding Figure before they Take hands.
