I can help you out with low cutting for now. This is the standard method.

4 and a 1, 2 and a 3, 4 and a 2, 2, 3, 4 and a 3, 2 and a 3, 4 and a 4, 2, 3, 4 and a 5, 2, 3, 4 and a 6, 2, 3. Break A: 7 and 2 and 3 and 4 and 8, 2, 3, 4 and an 8... Repeat contra bars 8-16.

Hope that helps and makes sense.

OK, no problem...I forgot the pause on last ct bar 6 on my previous post, it's included here after bar 14. This would also apply when dancing break b, but wouldn't apply to break c. Pause last ct end of bar 16 depends on which step you're linking to: 4 and a 9, 2 and a 3, 4 and a 10, 2, 3, 4 and an 11, 2 and a 3, 4 and a 12, 2, 3, 4 and a 13, 2, 3, 4 and a 14, 2, 3 (4). Break A: 15 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 16 2 3 (4).

Double treble step, 2 counts to the bar:
1 and and a 2 and and a 2 and and a 2. 3 and and a 2 and and a 4 and and a 2 Break: 5 & 2 & 6 & 2 & 7 & 2 8 2. Repeat contra bars 9-16.
