Author's Notes:
"This dance is not suitable for crowded conditions.
I wrote this dance on September 20, 1991. The name was modeled after CDS Reel, a contra dance by Ted Sannella (appears in Ted Sannella, "Swing the Next"). I founded the Anglo-American Dance Service (AADS) in the fall of 1990 together with Frieda Van Vlaenderen and Luc Blancke. The AADS is a Belgian country dance society that promotes folk dancing from the British Isles and America."

This dance is from William Watson's mirror of American Country Dances On Line
