Colin, in Tea Up! you indicate using a step-hop for A2. Do I assume the remainer of the dance is a walking step. It seems to me that the whole dance could be done using a schottische step — 1,2,3,hop.

Thanks,  Grant

Grant —

I'm sorry, there are more errors in DWAD5 than in any of my other books — I produced it in a rush.  In this case I copied the instructions straight from my card, which has the "step-hop" squeezed in at the end of A2.  I would expect the whole dance to be done to a step-hop, though in any hornpipe dance you have the option of using a schottishe step.
