Jump on both feet, jump and kick the right leg out, jump on both feet, jump and kick the left leg out
Moll In The Wad was clearly one of the most popular late eighteenth/early nineteenth century tunes with many, many sets of dance figures published with it. These include Platt 1796, Cahusac 1797, Smart 1798, Lavenu 1798, Preston 1798, Bland & Weller 1798, Plat 1798, Fentum 1798, Riley6 1799, Wilson: Treasures of Terpsichore, Hardy Mss 1800, Clare Mss. I took one of them, made a few interpretations and created this.
The interpretation that has been published by the EFDSS uses a Scottish allemande figure for B2 and not one of the multiple 'English' allemandes.
