so this is the current language in the guidelines:

Dancers are not permitted to move in a counter direction when executing "rolls." "Rolls" may be danced on the spot or moving in the direction of the leading foot e.g. the first bar of music in the King of the Fairies may be danced on the spot or to the right when dancing on the right foot and on the spot or to the left when dancing on the left foot.


BUT the link where that comes from is down,so I'm wondering if they're updating the rules...I'm not sure what you would do in a dance like King to replace them.

We learned KOF without drums. We use "heel-step, heel-step" near the beginning of the set as in this video:

Olive Hurley also mentions this variation in her trad set video.

Hi

Can you clarify what Organization you are in? The rules are different for what is or is not allowed and what is considered "traditional" depending on who you are affiliated with. (I won't go into the whole traditional vs invented discussion this early - 7:15am - on St. Patrick's day)

If you are talking about CLRG I can get it clarified for you tomorrow - my TC is on their committee and knows of the newest decisions.

Kind regards
