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.
