Note: Within Australia (and internationally) several different versions of a dance can evolve down the years. The versions shown in these videos have been chosen to be as similar as possible to those done in South Australia and provide a clear picture of the basic patterns of the dances. Note for keen dancers: The videos uploaded by Mary Smith are supplemented by notes by one of Australia’s leading dance historians, Peter Ellis (1946-2015).
