This dance was devised by Irene van Maarseveen, of Pretoria, South Africa in 2002. She also devised Joie de Vivre published in RSCDS Book 39. The recommended tune is “Dr. James Hamilton's Reel” by Robert Mackintosh. Noah's Ark is a two couple dance, and the title also relates to the duplication of forenames of the dancers in Pretoria Branch.
