Speed Virginia Reel at Ochre Court

The Virginia Reel is an interesting dance. No matter how carefully you teach it, there are always a few people who refuse to wait for the music and push the speed. When you're trying to be serious and have a lovely and period accurate ball, this can be irritating. Speed Virginia Reel doesn't even try that hard, and instead strives to be insane. It was invented by teenagers a couple of months ago (Nick W and Julia P - you know it is all your fault, guys), and it doesn't even pretend to be dancing to music. Is it a farce? A race? A dance with death? You decide - but it results in photos good enough for their own post! Here are some of my favorites
