Music: Moll Peatley The New Way (The Dancing Master, 11th edn, 1701)
Formation: Sicilian Circle Improper Mixer

A1 1-4 Partner back-to-back
A2 1-4 Partner two-hand turn 1.5 (or swing, end facing neighbor) 
B1 1-6 Three changes of rights and lefts (with hands)
  7-10 (With the one you meet) swing (ending proper, facing in or out, opposite your partner)
Notes 1 The Sicilian Circle Improper formation is like a normal Sicilian Circle, but you and your partner are swapped over so the lady is on the man's left
  2 This is a variant of The Institute, but with partner interaction to satisfy American sensibilities!
  3 The tune is published in "Country Bumpkin" & Other English Country Dances (which also contains The Institute) and is available from the Country Dance and Song Society (CDSS) Store.  There is also a version of the tune in Barnes.
  4 Listen to the tune played by Pyewackett!
