Dances and their tunes

Please feel free to use any of our dances, all we ask is that you credit us where it is due ( or the original group or person from whom the dance was purloined)

At the end  we hope to place some midi files and dance notes of some of the basic dances & music, which should help you with some of the dances. If you have any difficulty interpreting the dance please do not hesitate to contact us.
