As earlier in the day we did a Pat Shaw workshop, I decided to do all dances that used elements or pieces of English Country Dancing. I couldn't fit in all the material I wanted to use (having to leave out "Goodman's Fancy" hurt), and really could have expanded this by another hour. Fitting in sufficient swings and courtesy turns was tricky.
