Brighton Camp

Longways set for 3 to 6 couples.

Tune: Brighton Camp

A.	C1, with crossed hands, casts off and leads up the middle to position, 
        followed by all the other couples.
B1.	C1 swings down the middle and takes up position below the last couple (progressive).
B2.	All couples swing.

This dance involves a partner swing, a move unknown in traditional English Country Dances but familiar to any North American contra or square dancer.

Country Dance which people were dancing in England in ~1909. Cecil Sharp recorded it and published it in “The Country Dance Book” (Part 1) published in 1909. It is a proper longways set “for as many as will”,
