The dance in its original form was probably a triple minor. By compressing it to a duple minor the long rest period at each end of the set is eliminated and the neutral couples at both ends of the set are involved at some part of the dance.
During Al (5-8) a neutral couple at the top should dance 3 changes of a circular hey with the 2nd couple from the set below who have just moved up. In A2 the neutral couple (now progressed) temporarily become a lst couple and step back and cast up to their neutral place allowing the lst couple to dance the L.H. star with their own 2nd couple.
A neutral couple at the bottom of the set will be involved in the 3 changes of a circular hey A1 (5-8). They should then step back, meet and lead down to their neutral position. They will not be involved in the L.H. star A2 (5-8).
The neutral couples at both the top and bottom of the set will be individually active during the B music.
When there is not a neutral couple at the bottom the lst couple should turn 2 hands during A1 (5-8) finishing proper ready to rejoin the dance at A2.
Michael Barraclough says: Ken Sheffield has condensed the original triple minor dance to a duple minor dance by using the 'next 2nd couple' as a 3rd couple, as well as making significant changes to the original figures.
