Pride and Pomposity

or Monieks Maggot-duple-version

  Duple minor 
  Reconstructed by JN and named from Pride and Prejudice 
  movie 2005 version. This is clearly a conceit created to 
  give enough time for dialogue, particularly in the 
  extremely long down and back. However, it is a nice 
  looking dance, even if very difficult to phrase comfortably. 
  Comments on the DVD suggest it took over 5 hours to shoot, 
  on top of rehearsal, and there was a lot of editing after. 
  It is unfortunate that the film shows practically only the 
  head and shoulders of the protagonists -- the rest of the 
  dancers are hard to see -- indeed they are "deleted" for 
  the last round of the dance!
  
  A1 Couple 1 cross right shoulder and fall back
     (as per Neat Mr. John)
     Couple 1 2H turn all way round
     Couple 1 mirror turn single out of the turn,
     M right, W left, while
     Couple 2 cross R shoulder moving up and passing
     Couple 1 (men right, women left)
     Couple 1 cross R shoulder into gypsies
     M1 W2 on men's side LEFT
     M2 W1 on women's side RIGHT, into
  A2 Lines of 4 (W2 M1 W1 M2 facing up) up and back
     C1 face out, C2 face in for almost full hey for 4
     C1 finish in middle after 7/8 of hey, 
     C2 finish it improper)
     and C1 face down improper for 
  B  Longish down the middle and back (I tend to find 
     this is 6+ of the 8 bars with final 2 or slightly 
     less for ...)
     C1 cross and cast to new places while
     C2 cross and move up if necessary.

Note: There is a triple minor version by Philippe Callens 1990 for Moniek van Hylfe
