Video Notes
This is an occupational dance from Baleshare, North Uist.
Four couples in a longwise set perform movements representing stages in the weaving of cloth with the shuttle, the loom, the threading and winding of the bobbin all illustrated in the dance formations.
A running step, heavily accented on the first note of each bar, is used throughout the dance.
