Listening to the music and I can picture the dances in my mind. Everyone dancing is smiling and having a great time! The instructions in the booklet are clear and the illustrations have a comfortable, vintage look. Perfect for old time dancing!
A 40 page CD and booklet that introduces the basics of square dancing featuring:
Explanations of common moves - do si do, allemande, swing, and promenade.
Instructions for 5 great dances for beginners - Virginia Reel, Bird in the Cage, Bird Fly Through, Shoot that Bird Home, and Butterfly Twirl.
Tips and advice for learning to call, finding musicians, booking venues, and outreach to your community.
A memoir of my favourite (and least favourite!) dance calling experiences. Originally published in the Old Time Herald.
7 hand-drawn dance illustrations, plus additional diagrams.
Music and calls for each dance in the booklet, performed by the house band for my monthly dances: the Estro-Jennies! (5 tracks with calls, and the same 5 tracks without calls)
