Leesburg Assembly Too


By: Michael Barraclough, 2012
Music: Two Rivers (Larry Unger, 1986)
Formation: Longways duple minor improper

A1 1-4 Neighbor gate (ladies moving forward)
  5-6 Ladies change (pass right, keep facing out)
  7-8 Ladies cast left while men move left along the set (turn single left inside the set)
  9-12 Opposite back-to-back
  13-16 Circle left (all the way)
     
A2 1-4 Neighbor gate (men moving forward)
  5-6 Men change (pass right, keep facing out)
  7-8 Men cast left while ladies move left along the set (turn single left inside the set)
  9-12 Opposite (partner) back-to-back
  13-16 Circle left (all the way, keep hands at the end)
     
B1 1-2 Balance in and out
  3-4 Partners change (lady under the man's arm, end facing opposite direction, take hands in a new ring)
  5-6 Balance in and out
  7-8 Partners change (as above, take hands in original ring)
  9-10 Balance in and out (drop hands at end)
  11-12 Move one place to the right around the circle (a Petronella type movement with 2 waltz steps)
  13-16 Repeat bars 9-12
     
B2 1-4 Right-hand star (all the way, into)
  5-8 Neighbor right hand turn once and a half (end facing next neighbor)
  9-12 (Next neighbor) back-to-back
  13-16 Circle left (all the way, into)
     
Notes 1 The movement in A1 and A2 bars 5-8 is a half-figure eight for the active gender people (ie end opposite where you start) whilst the other gender people swap places along the line with the person who was in the gate with them.
     
  2 In A2 1-4, your neighbor is actually your partner!
      
  3 The tune, Two Rivers, can be found in Waltz Book II and there is a downloadable PDF file here.  You can hear the tune played here.
      
  4 The dance is called Leesburg Assembly Too because it turns out that there is already a dance called Leesburg Assembly.
     
  5 It turns out that there is already a dance to Two Rivers too - Starring Loretta by Bob Green.  You can see it here.

Dan Blim has written a nice dance to this tune too -- it's called Confluence, a four-couple set, somewhat complex.
