English Traditional Dancing – Book
A wonderful introduction to English Country Dancing.
Instructions for 28 dances in traditional English style for dance beginners of all ages.
Suitable for school teachers, community leaders and home learning families with little or no prior knowledge of English traditional social dancing.
The new edition of our best selling English folk dancing teaching resource is fully illustrated with diagrams and new photographs throughout. This rich resource gives clear instructions for 28 English country / ceilidh dances.
The dance material comes from counties as far apart as Cornwall and Northumberland. The pages are organised so that the simplest dances are printed first and the dances get progressively more complex, with additional dances in similar shapes added to the book. A comprehensive index and glossary, historical information, as well as special teaching notes and suggestions for schools are also included. Whether you are five or ninety-five, traditional dance can be a way of keeping fit, socialising, introducing newcomers to traditional music and finding out about your cultural heritage.
