Your description was truncated, but the setup is identical to
Childgrove, an English Country Dance first published in Playford in
1701. They dance a lot of ECD out West. Most of the other dances on
the list that you might be unfamiliar with are also ECD, and can be
found in _The Playford Ball: 103 Early English Country Dances_.
