Type: Contra Dance, Duple Improper
Dedicated to Robin Humes – family friend and super volunteer in service of the Concord Scout House area contra community. It’s only fitting this dance include a Mad Robin (besides the obvious eponymous link), because Bob Isaacs’ dance Redbeard Reel (commissioned by Robin for her husband – John Wasser) features one as well.
When mentioning the title, I think it’s fun to give it proper super hero intonation: “SUP-er Robin!” 🙂
Neighbor Gypsy (or Balance) & Swing
