background information

from rex@levee

Pronounce "Mand" as the English "man."

Common misspelling: "Mann"

Common confusion: men do not hook elbows.

Common malpractice: "flying" does not belong in this dance in any but a gymnastic setting and by mutual consent.

The dance, although said to be from Himmerland, near Randers, does not occur in the Danish "Folkedanse fra Randerseignen".
