Author's Notes:
Any doubts I had about this dance were erased after I had a chance to dance it once. This has got to be one of the smoothest dances I have seen in a long while and which you must experience to fully appreciate. My goal in writing this dance was to create a Becket formation dance with both a partner swing and a neighbor swing. Halliehurst is a splendid old mansion on the grounds of Davis & Elkins College in Elkins, West Virginia on whose front porch many impromptu contra dances have taken place.

Editor's Notes:
In A1 at the end of the two allemandes the gents are in the middle, the 1's are facing down and the 2's are facing up.

This dance is from American Country Dances On Line
