The name means "topsy turvy" in Scottish, and I got it from the band of the same name. Thanks to Clare Woolgrove who came up with the band name.

I wrote this dance because my wife pointed out that although it's called "The Queen Bee", another dance I wrote only had the gentlespoons doing the ricochet, and the ladles should have some fun too.
