Recommended Music: "Miss Nicola Black," e.g. as recorded by David Cunningham and his Scottish Dance Band for "If at First" on Leicester Branch 1977-2002 The Silver Collection.
Devised by Truus de Ceuster (tdceuster [at] gmail.com), with input from Margaret Lambourne, Wil van de Berg, Geoff Entwistle, and Lara Friedman~Shedlov. "Only a few weeks ago the Utrecht SCD-group (www.theswilcan.nl) was informed that the gymnasium where we dance will be demolished on very short term. Fortunately we found another hall, but yesterday was our last dance in the old hall."
