Always so fun. You asked me last week what my favorite dance was! Well...of course there's the Virginia Reel. But a dance I love almost more than that is Hulls' Victory. And Rustic Reel is one that I have enjyoed watching, but haven't learned yet. And there are dozens others! What dance is your favorite? I love dances that are lively; especially when they have beautiful music. (Our version of Hulls' Victory sounds Irish! love. :))

Yes, they are! :)

Well, I don't have just one favorite dance. Some of the ones I like a lot are "Irish Washerwoman", "Duke of Kent's Waltz", "Hole in the Wall" and "Virginia Reel". :) I don't really remember the names of any other dances, except "Levi Jackson" (I don't know how to dance that one). One of the dances I like is kind of a waltz tempo and you have to poussette your partner. :) Do you prefer being the #1 couple or the #2 couple? I have danced a few dances where you have more that 2 couples dancing together. Those are usually more confusing!

Hmm... "Hulls' Victory" and "Rustic Reel"-- never heard of them until now. I'll have to look them up! :)

Thanks for the comment.
