Bob Dalsemer - Chase the Rabbit


Bob Dalsemer - Chase the Rabbit

Alternative title

dances from Morgantown, WV


Southern / Appalachian / Four-couple squares


In this version, after the "chase the rabbit, chase the squirrel" figure, dancers immediately follow up with "opposite by the right hand round, partner by the left hand round" then circle left. As the first couple reaches the last of their neighboring couples, the second couple moves on to the third so that all dancers are involved. This is followed by a Pokey-O, where the two groups of four revolve around each other and back to home, where everyone swings partner.

Recorded at Dare To Be Square, Seattle, in 2009. For a more complete view of dances from the weekend, see the audio and video files posted here.
