Wee Willie II
Source: Adapted by John Sweeney
Formation: Four Couples; Longways; Proper

A1 Start holding two hands with partner
With the foot nearest to the music: Heel & Toe x2 (4); Gallop Up (4)
With the foot furthest from the music:Heel & Toe x2 (4); Gallop Down (4)
A2 Top Couple Zig-Zag Poussette to the Bottom (#1 Lady Pull)
B1 Partner Two Hand Turn - open into
In Fours: Slip Circle Left
B2 In Fours: Slip Circle Right
Partner Dosido

Music:
32 bars. Bouncy music to make the Heel & Toes and Gallops work well.

Notes:
Make sure the sets start well away from the stage so that they can gallop up.

Heel & Toe: hop on the other foot while doing the Heel & Toe.

Zig-Zag Poussette: Half a CW Pousette with #2s; Half an AC Poussette with #3s. #2s and #3s should move all the time, staying level with each other.

I learnt Wee Willie at a barn dance, but it didn't seem to flow very well when I tried it at my dances, so I changed the order of the moves and changed the arming into slip circles. I think this has a much better flow.
