Interesting English Country Dances

A music Laurel made me do it! Having been asked to help select songs for a CD of English Country Dance music, I was reminded of all the dances with fun figures and interesting choruses that we seldom dance in An Tir. I've selected several of my favorites, all from Playford's 1st edition (circa1651). Beginning with a brief overview of source and social context, the intended focus of this class is more on learning specific dances than theory. Dances included: Row Well Ye Marriners, Millisons Jegg, Old Mole, The Whirligig, Saint Martins, Dull Sir John

Other classes by the teacher(s) listed above are highlighted yellow below.
