A rough night. I was moving that day, and had no time to eat dinner, never mind practice the dances. That hit me hard with "Quite Carr-ied Away." Not one of my better moments.
"Quite Carr-ied Away" is on our upcoming ball, a triple minor to be done Scottish-style with four couple sets. So I started by re-doing the familiar "Key to the Cellar" in the four-couple set formation, explaining progression. That went fine.
But in the actual dance, several things got confused. Next time I do it, in the B-part I'm definitely going to have the ones notice their corner after the right-hand turn, and mention both the hey and the left-hand turn start with that person.
And get straightened out the circle 1/2 versus the circle 1.
Some evenings go better than others...
