Minor clarification. I meant that the progression on *some* of the Playford
1 longaways dances is substantially different from later progressions. I
have been reminded that they aren't all the same! Here I'm specifically
referring to the dances that call for progressing with one figure at a time,
rather than having the dance repeat through one full time before the
progression. In the former one progresses up and down the set once for each
figure of the dance; in the latter just once. Clear as mud, eh?
