Dance Video Libraries

Dear dancers and teachers,

We are pleased to announce a brand new look to our Video Library, which now has TWO SECTIONS - Traditional dances and Choreographed dances.

Those of you who have followed the birth and growth of our video library since its inception two years ago, will know that we have amassed a wide variety of videos, featuring both traditional and choreographed dances. We hope that by splitting the videos into two sections, it will be quicker for teachers and dancers when searching for a particular dance, and wanting to check dance steps and arm movements. We also hope that you may discover new dances to teach your groups, and you will come to regard the library as a reliable source of dance information.

We are indebted to Adrian Pointon for his enormous help in providing videos and step notations for many of the dances in the traditional section. We are also indebted to Judy King for kindly agreeing to share hers and Mandy’s copyright step notations in return for a small donation (in Mandy’s memory) to the Severn Hospice. To see how to make a donation, just click on the PDF step note link where it states that notations are available from Judy’s sources.

Enjoy browsing our collection and happy dancing to you all,

from the CSCD video team
