 +This dance, even with the music reduced in tempo, has a very vigorous and
 +unforgiving B part. To reduce the stress on less athletic dancers, the
 +couples can substitute a half figure 8 and a two hand turn half way instead
 +of the full figure 8s, but must still remember the final cast and lead.
 +Note that couples can opt to do this without interfering with other 
 +dancers. --- //​[[nashjc]] 2019/10/31 13:42//
 +The music is drawn from Handel'​s //The Alchemist//​. According to Wikipedia
 +''​The Alchemist, HWV 43, is incidental music used for the revival of Ben Jonson'​s play The Alchemist at the Queen'​s Theatre, London on 14 January 1710. The work is an arrangement,​ by an anonymous composer, of music written by Handel.'' ​
