Made sticky by TheMidlakeMuse (78507) on 2009-10-23 16:39:41 stickyfied! great post.

There have been a few recent requests for the traditional set dances written out with video links. These are only to be used as a guide – every school has some slight variations so make sure you consult your teacher. For example, where I have a “treble step” (two sounds), your school might have a “brush step” (one sound). Where I have “brush hop step” in St. Patrick’s Day (leg straight in front), your school might have a, “brush cut step,” (leg bent kicking opposite hip). For some dances, especially Garden of Daisies and Jockey to the Fair, entire 8 bar counts could be 100% different (but still right!). Moral of the story: Talk with your TCRG to ensure that you know your school’s versions of the traditional set dances. ☺

Vocabulary
Brush: one sound. Hit the floor one time in a forward motion. Also called a tip.
Treble: two sounds. Brush forward, brush back. Also called ralley or shuffle.
Step: transfer the weight onto the foot that is currently in the air. Example: treble step = right foot trebles then bares weight
“1 2” or “3 4” or “2 3 4” or “1 2 3 4”…: Multiple steps. 1234 would be “right left right left” or “left right left right”

St. Patrick’s Day

Treble step treble step treble step treble step
Treble hop treble hop back brush hop step brush hop step
brush hop step kick hop back brush step tip cut heel step
Treble hop treble hop back hop back 2 3 4

Hop and hop back brush 1 2 brush 1 2
Brush step tip hop heel step brush 1 2 brush 1 2
Jump step kick hop back brush step tip hop heel step
Treble hop treble hop back brush step tip cut heel step
Brush 1 2 brush 1 2 jump step kick hop back
Hop rock rock rock treble step streble step
Treble hop treble hop back hop back 2 3 4

This is good for the STEP. The set is wrong – the right foot of the set should always end on the left foot, regardless of differences in versions. Do NOT follow this set.

DO NOT FOLLOW THIS SET. They both messed up :P

Garden of Daisies

Please note: Garden of Daisies has MANY different variations, especially in the set. The video links have a few completely different versions – make sure you know which one your school uses before you try to learn the dance from my words and youtube links!

brush step brush step treble hop back 2 3 brush step treble hop treble hop kick hop
brush step toe cut brush step tip hop brush heel down treble step heel change heel
down treble hop treble hop kick hop tip cut brush step brush step toe cut
brush step treble hop back brush step treble cut treble hop back

…
I’m not going to type the rest since there are SO many different versions. Ask your TCRG for your school’s ending.

Thanks for posting those. Hopefully I can figure out one little part on Job of Journeywork that I can't get. Also, just thought I'd let you know that on the first video link for King of the Faeries (the one that you that you added that This is the version typed), well that video shows RealHappyFeet (she is the taller dancer) doing a very fast King of the Faeries. Great job DefyingGravity for posting all these. Also, great job to all the dancers featured on the links that are posted.

This is great, thanks for posting! I just wanted to point out that some of them have variations depending on what country someone is in, or even what dance school they go to.

Ah hahahahahhah RealHappyFeet - You're a DDN Sticky for King of the Faeries! You'll never be relegated to 'History' :D Congrats!

DefyingGravity - Thank you for the time and effort you put into this post. I've already made a copy and have decided to master Kings (hate the last part - can't keep it straight in my head) and to start Daisies. You've got me motivated!

Great job!

This is awesome.

It's still bothering me that the version I know of Job of Journeywork's step is different, but I guess that's what comes in ID!

This is definitely getting Karma :)

For those of you who have different versions (or even a different vocabulary for the same version), I urge you to post them here! How awesome would it be to have all versions of all dances in one place?!

...Pretty darn awesome. That's how awesome. :)

Also, I noticed a spelling error in St. Pat's.

Thank you for this! My dd just knows St. Pat's and is anxious to learn other set dances. Now we just have to figure out the step translations.

ex: we do St. Pat's "treble 1, treble 2, treble 3, treble 4
double treble and back, hop 1, hop 2..."

I've had a couple PM requests for me dancing the dances slowly so words can be matched to moves, so here it goes!

Step of King of the Faeries (by far the most requested):

As I tape more I'll add them to that account. Feel free to either keep checking back or subscribe to my "channel" so you'll receive updates.

My set dance (King of the Fairies) is my hornpipe just changed into a set dance. Does this happen often? My teacher has done this (also) with Storyteller (which is my Heavy Jig).

The versions you are referring to are the non-traditional set dances that are danced in championships and are unique to each school. The King of the Faeries listed here is the traditional version that is danced the same worldwide in Beginner-Prizewinner.
