This   dance   is   identical   to   East   Neuk   Storm    danced   in   strathspey   time.   We   initially   tried   this   to   get   the   9-24   bars movement   fixed   in   our   minds      -   and   liked   it!   As   the   dance   was   written   to   go   with   the   tune,   David   Page   kindly wrote a second tune with phrases borrowed from the original so they are still ‘themed’.
