Five years ago I posted a description of the late nineteenth-century Rye Waltz, a simple sequence dance set to a special version of "Coming Through the Rye" that alternates between duple and triple (waltz) meter.
In 1914, Oklahoma City dancing master M. W. Cain submitted a new version of the dance, the Rye Hesitation, to F. Leslie Clendenen's compilation Dance Mad. Cain's version is extremely simple, well-suited to beginning dancers. It requires no actual waltzing; the waltz music segment is occupied by one-to-the-bar hesitation steps.
