Kentucky Set Running - 1993
Notes by John Ramsay: "The Kids From The Country, a country dance team from Silver Creek School in Berea, Kentucky demonstrate "running a set" or Set Running. Their music teacher, Mr. Barton, is the caller. Note that each couple takes a turn being the leader. In Daniel Boone's time, each couple would repeat the same figure; when each had their turn, a new figure would be introduced and the dance would last an hour or two. In this demonstration, each couple introduces a different figure and it lasts only a few minutes."
