The dance has three parts or figures represented by the three colours in the design: red represents the energy the dancers bring to the floor; black represents the dark wood of the fiddles, playing jigs in the first two figures and reels in the third figure; the three white lines are representative of the dancers, meeting and changing positions, with interlinking of arms throughout the three figures.
