Engelska, Stigtomta, Södermanland

Country: Sweden
Formation: any number of couples in large closed circle. If more than 3 couples, this becomes a mixer.
Steps: buzz, walk
Music: engelska efter Gustav Petterson, Valla

1-8 1 In closed circle, 16 walking steps CW.
1-3 2 Right hand chain to 4th person. 7 walking steps.
4 Stamp 3 times, alternating feet.
5-8 Polska or waltz hold, 8 buzz steps turning CW on the spot.
9-16 Repeat 2.
    Repeat from the beginning as desired. Note that although the music is played AABB, the sequence structure of the dance is ABB. Therefore the circle and chaining sequences do not begin at the same point in the music each time.

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

Note 2: see another video on Dancilla.
