Different dances are practised, often repeating parts over and over again until the movements of the feet, bodies, sticks, slings or garlands are co-ordinated. During the evening the team stops for a brief meeting. called a "bagging", (so called because originally all the information was kept in a bag!). This is when any business is dealt with and the secretary (bagman [lady]) informs everyone of functions and finds out who will be available to dance.
When you have learnt some of the dances, or tunes if you join the musicians, you will be invited to dance out or play as part of the team.
