English Country Dances for Two

During the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020-21, we realized that many country dancers have at least one other dancer with whom they can share a room. So we set out to modify a number of favorite country dances to make them fun for just two dancers.  Our modifications stay close to the original choreography or reconstruction but eliminate the need to dance with imaginary partners or wait while another imaginary couple does something.


Abbreviations

D1 = dancer 1     D2 = dancer 2     s&ts = set and turn single (usually to the right)

L = left                R = right              RS = right shoulder                          LS = left shoulder

fd = forward        bk = back            cw = clockwise                                 ccw = counterclockwise

RHT = right hand turn                     LHT = left hand turn                        2HT = two hand turn (usually cw)


Formation

The dancers stand facing the music.  Dancer 2 is on the right of dancer 1. “Up” is toward the music. “Down” is away from the music.
