The steps are compounded into a number of figures common to all, or most, of the dances as follows –



Use the basic stepping sequence as already given but, uniquely, start on the inside foot. Travel forwards with a big surge at least six feet on the four single steps and dance the double step on the spot or even travelling backwards slightly. The foot-together-jump is replaced in this figure only by a hook step in which the dancer turns out to face the opposite direction (first half) or turns in and across to face the partner (second half). In the hook step the dancer places the leading foot outside the line of the body, leaps high and turns over it in the air and makes the trailing foot, on which he/she lands/ perform a “hooking” motion while in the air. The whole step is an exaggeration.



Uses the basic stepping sequence and a similar track to that used in most other morris traditions. Face partner and pass right shoulders first half and left shoulders second half.

Four single steps out to pass partner
Double step rapidly backwards to place
ftj on the spot in place.



Four single steps to cross over to the opposite place in the set

Double step in opposie place facing out
ftj to turn around anti-clockwise



First two single steps – top and bottom dancers turn out while the middles turn right and dance out of the line of the set.
Second two single steps – – tops and bottoms move down or up as appropriate, passing right shoulders, while middles turn to face back towards the set
Double step – into place and ftj facing across the set



Dance as large a circle as possible, moving clockwise. Eight bars of music out and eight to return to place.

First half:

Four single steps around the circumference of the circle, turn to face out to dance the double step on the spot as, also, the ftj

Second half:

Four single steps in the reverse direction, turning to face out on the last one
Double step on the spot facing out
ftj to reform the set – turning right on the jump.
