Dances Devised in Our Community
Village Green is incredibly lucky to have Elizabeth Goossen as a member, instructor, musician, mentor, composer, and devisor of dances. Instructions, music and videos for Liz’s dances are available online. Books and CDs can be purchased by contacting us.

Dances Devised for a Pandemic
With the current COVID-19 pandemic changing dancing as we know it, our instructors have modified, rewritten, and updated many of our favourite dances to allow for no contact and greater distance between dancers.
This manual has been a labour of love for our instructors for many years. Its recent digitization means that we get to share it with you.
This resource is free to use (that’s how folk traditions work!), but please don’t reproduce it for mass distribution without our permission.
Here are other dance resources and dance organizations you may be interested in.
