“It is all in fun, a ‘masquerade’, and some versions of it have many different dances woven in, including the walz, mazurka, polka, hopsa, schottische, rheinlander, pols ~ etc… If taken in the good humour intended, not serious, it can be a fun dance… If my memory is serving me reasonably, which is rare, I believe one version incorporated as many as seven different dances.”
“One of the funniest ceilidh dances, this is actually a Danish folk dance, combining a haughty slow march, graceful waltz and maverick polka.”
