Subject: [trad-dance-callers] Swing with arms arched over top
I learned a swing from Irish dancing, but don't remember what it's called.
It's the swing with the left hands joined and arched over the heads of the dancers and
the right hands on each others waists. I call it the "ceili" swing...what would
you call it?
