- This dance was written for Seattle’s own Julia D — Julia Derby. Her only request was to “Write a dance that fits the fiddle tune: Julia Delaney.” Although she didn’t explicitly say so, I suspect she was also hoping for a dance that doesn’t suck. I believe that this dance fulfills both of those requirements.
- In the long waves at the end of A1, the women are facing in and the men are facing out. One should have one’s neighbor in one’s right hand.
