The Sunday Class
Devised   in   March   2003   to   celebrate   the   10 th   Anniversary   of   the   Strathspey   Server.   The   strathspey   balance   in   line figure   across   the   top   and   bottom   of   the   set,   and   then   on   the   sides,   depicts   the   connections   among   dancers around the world through the Internet, thanks to the Strathspey Server. Chris Ronald This   dance   has   been   called   ‘The   Two   Gentleman’,   when   the   real   title   couldn’t   be   recalled,   and   maybe   this   could describe   Chris   now   that   he   has   gained   American   citizenship.   Our   English   Gentleman   has   officially   become   Our Man in New York too.

The   steps   are   the   same   as   for   strathspey   setting.   The   hands   move   as follows:   on   bar   1,   those   with   left   hands   joined   in   the   middle   drop left   hands   and   all,   moving   to   the   right,   join   left   hands   under   right hands   then   drop   right   hands.   Those   moving   into   the   middle   of   the line   join   right   hands.   Repeat   moving   to   the   left   on   bar   2,   joining right hands under left hands.
