I wanted to have another CD/Book from these folks and I love this set. Great arrangements, great dances. I haven't tried all of them yet, but LOVE the ones I do use. I like that the songs are longer. This is great for older students.

Started a teaching job and purchased all the Amidon stuff to have and use as part of my curriculum.

Have loved the Amidon's recordings for years. They are quality recordings, good instructions, fun activities for classes of a variety of ages.

This was recommended to me by another teacher as an excellent reference to teach dance at the Elem. level.
