This   dance   arose   from   dancing   The   Celtic   Reel    by   Barry   Skelton   and   the   idea   that   the   ‘Celtic   reel’   could   well   be done   in   a   square   set   with   all   four   couples   dancing   the   reel   together.   Other   movements   were   added,   each   with celtic   patterns   in   mind.   The   dance   was   used   as   the   theme   dance   for   the   27 th   Australian   Winter   School   in   Sydney July 6-13 th  2002, which had a Celtic theme. The   dance   was   published   in   the   Sydney   50 th   Anniversary   (2002)   Book   of   Dances   and   subsequently   by   Brian   himself in his Waratah Collection.
