Description

This 2010 revision of New England Dancing Masters’ classic collection of 20 traditional dances for children contains improved and updated dance descriptions, along with several additional sections on teaching dance to children, including tips on calling a dance and various strategies for choosing partners with children.

The book encompasses simple longways dances, circle dances, square dances, and contra dances. It also includes ideas for teaching dance successfully in schools, a glossary of dance terms, and transcriptions of the dance tunes.
