|Set:||4 couple longways.|
|Music:||Done purely to a drum solo.|
|Trivia:||Meant to represent the fight the molly gangs invariably had when they met in Cambridge at the end of the day's dancing. Ended up with other connotations.|
|History:||Second version -- a lot of the detailed timing has been changed for consistency with other dances.|
|The dance starts in two lines off the stage behind 1 and 2,
|1-7||1&2 lead their lines forward.|
|8-15||1&2 quarter turn right and lead into positions
in a wide longways set.|
3&4 turn likewise on beat 10, 5&6 on 12 and 7&8 on 14.
|16||All turn right a quarter more and finish standing in set:
|1-2||7&2 stamp step towards one another.|
|3-4||7&2 and 5&4 stamp step towards one another.|
|5-6||7&2, 5&4 and 3&6 stamp step towards one another.|
By this point 7&2 should meet in the middle (having carefully judged their steps up to this point :-) )
|7-8||All stamp step one quarter turn to face up.|
Odds will have to do this step on the left foot, but should nevertheless be on the right foot before and after it.
All but 7&2 finish standing.
|9-10||Single stepping, 7&2 lead up between 5&4.|
|11-12||5,7,2&4 in a line lead up between 3&6.|
|13-14||3,5,7,2,4&6 in a line lead up between 1&8.
|15-16||Odds two quarter turns right.|
evens step on the spot.
|Figure 1:||Big Hugs|
|This figure is counted in multiples of 6 beats.|
|1||All put right fist on right hip (including those at the ends).|
|2||All link left arm through arm of
|3-11||1&8 salute and the whole line goes round (anticlockwise) an entire revolution.|
|12||7&2 unlink arms.|
2,4,5&7 look right towards the centre of the new lines.
|13-18||7&2 salute with free (left) hand.|
Even line rotate clockwise back to places in line, as they were before chorus 1.
Odd line rotate clockwise back to places, but are now inverted.
|19-20||Look across to other line.|
Lines forward to meet, shouting.
|23-24||All drop hands and spread out a little from one another.|
|1-14||As chorus 1, but the odd line is now inverted, so 1&2 lead.|
|15-16||Step on the spot (all face forward).
|Figure 2:||Little Hugs|
|1||All put right fist on right hip.|
|2||1&8 put left fist on left hip.|
Rest link left arm through arm of neighbour.
All look to middle of line of four.
|3-7||Salute at the ends.|
Lines go forward around 1&2 (who turn on the spot) back to places, as they were before chorus 2.
|8||Unlink arms in the middle of each line (3 with 5, 4 with 6).|
Turn heads in each pair to face each other.
|9-14||Salute with free hand.|
Turn round in pairs on the spot twice, middles going forwards.
|15-16||Drop hands, look forwards and spread out a little
from one another.|
|1-15||As chorus 2.|
|16||Quarter turn to face centre of line (odds right, evens left).|
|Figure 3:||NFN (Normal for Norfolk)|
|1-12||Zig-zag hey, but starting in the centre, everyone else zig-zag stepping
to the side mirroring those in front until the hey reaches them.|
All back turns are on odd steps and therefore on the right foot, turning anticlockwise.
|13-||As each person reaches the end of the line on their side
(starting with 1&2) they switch to normal single stepping and curve down to meet at the bottom.|
When 1&2 meet again they restart the zig-zag, going straight through without back turns and coming out the other end.
Lines then continue to lead off.
