This is a slight variant on the mirror reel where the first couple cross at both ends. The description below is delibrately terse, describing only the differences between a standard reel of three and the inveran reel. For full details of the standard reel of three, see here.
|Start||First couple face down and in;
Second couple up and out;
Third couple up and in.
|1-4||First couple cross (lady in front of man) to start a half reel of three on the opposite side.|
|5-8||First couple cross back to their own side (lady in front of man) to start a half reel on their own side, back to places.|
N.B. The exact finishing position may differ (especially the way in which each person is facing) depending upon the dance.
