Harvest Time Jig

Dancers line up in sets of three opposite three with a gent in the middle and ladies on the outside. Continue forming sets of six down the hall until you run out of room or dancers. Half sets should form at the ends, waiting to join.

Note that the in the Sink & Grind and final pass through, the following dancers turn the ladies under arms.  That’s not technically correct but this is clearly danced as a demo and not competition.
