A second afternoon workshop based on the dances of Pat Shaw. Pat Shaw was an English Country dance composer who wrote a number of unique dances in the American dance style. Levi Jackson Rag is the most famous, but there are many more. If you're looking for unusual material, especially for contra weekends, his books make excellent references. See the May 24, 2008 program for the previous workshop.

All sicilian circles were converted to improper formation, except for The American Husband.
