A warm day in Los Angeles, with the outside temperature in the upper 80's, and good ventilation but no air conditioning. I used every slower paced alternate that I'd given the band.
Instead of having all turn singles to the right in "Gathering Peascods," I tried having the first turn single in each section to be to the left, to make it smoother. I also stuck with Shaw (shoulder) siding.
"Emerald Island" was a request from the organizers, as it was on their upcoming ball.
The version of "Jacob Hall Jig" I did left out the second arm turns in the A1/A2. They're clearly not in the original Playford, and it makes for a much more accesible dance.
