Type: Contra Dance, Duple Improper
Status: Public, Proven
The “♥” in the title is spoken as “Heart” – the title for this dance was given by our 5 year old daughter Raeden and inspired the unique Mirror Mad Robin and half Figure Eight in the choreography. First called (by me) at the Monday Contras dance at the Concord Scout House on February 13, 2017. This dance was a simplification of my first take on this theme, I ♥ Faeries.
