Skottis, ÚrMýrdal

Country: Island
Type: couple dance
Formation: couples, open circle, facing LOD
Steps: chassé, walk
Music: any schottis, e.g. <http://www.nordlek.dk/skottis_island_noder.pdf>
   
  Dance progression
1-2 Facing LOD, couples side by side, with M holding WR hand in own R, and WL hand in own left, arms crossed in front. Two chassé steps in LOD.
3-4 Right hand hold with partner. 4 walking steps half way round CW on the spot. M starts with L foot, W with R.
5-6 Left hand hold with partner. 4 walking steps half way round CCW on the spot. M starts with L foot, W with R.
7-8 Waltz hold, 2 chassé steps turning once round and moving in LOD.
  Repeat as desired.

Note: this is one of the combined dances for Nordlek 2012.

Note 2: this can easily be turned into a mixer, by, on 5-6 giving L hand not to partner but to next person (W moving CCW, M moving CW).
