Dances for Schools and Families
By Marian Rose

An introduction to many kinds of group dancing, and a resource for teachers wanting dance resource material that is up-to-date, fun to use, and clear and explicit. The first 7 dances require a specific song or melody (notated with guitar chords), and the rest of the dances can be done to a wide array of standard fiddle tunes. Suggested age levels for each dance are given.
The included CD features musicians playing real (folk and band) instruments - fiddle, mandolin, accordion, piano, tuba, trombone, percussion, clarinet, bass, guitar, etc.
