Ramsay Chase

by Joseph Pimentel

There's storyline and then there's storyline. Storyline is when all the figures fit together logically, and each flows naturally into the next, making it easy to remember. Storyline is a small play that you, your partner and the music improvise to.

And "Ramsay Chase" has both.

It's a simple one, of chasing and being chased, with pauses for interaction. Simple is all there's time for in 64 beats. The no-touch gypsy plus the pauses of coming forward and retreating set this dance far above run-of-the-mill chase sequences.

Instructions for this dance can be found here.
