Baker’s Wife

Circle of 7-9 couples. Best with 8. 
A1 Long-arm Spin Couple with backs to and nearest the band are couple 1, then number anti-clockwise.
Couples 1 and 5 Long-arm spin.
A2 Strip-the-Willow and Spin Lady 1 and man 1 strip-the-willow anti-clockwise, left arm to the outer circle, right arm to couple 5 (the pins).
B1 Right Arm Turn Both couples turn their partners by the right arm.
B2 New Couples Long-arm Spin The new couples are the next anti-clockwise, 2 and 6, and then 3 and 7 etc.
New couples start spinning for 8 bars. The old couples stop spinning after 4 bars, and the dance continues with the strip-the-willow.
This is repeated for a complete rotation and then the couples take reverse roles with the 5’s stripping the circle while the 1’s are the pins.
9/8 Jigs Don’t try calling this dance after the first time through. Walk through once and recap with one talk though.
