Antrim Reel

Category: Irish Ceili/Ceilidh

Dancers line up as couples, two opposite two repeating down the hall.
The first couple with their back to the band is couple 1 (odd, or top couple) with couples 2 and on numbered down the line.
Each set of two couples (four dancers) forms a set, dancing with each other until the end of the last movement.
The dance is progressive, each odd couple moving down one position after completing all the movements, and each even couple moving up one position towards the top of the set.

As each couple reaches either end of the line they should turn around and wait to progress back into the dance, remembering that the lady should be on the right side of the gent.
