GUEST,Les in Chorlton Barn Dances - Country Dances (25) Barn Dances - Country Dancing 01 Dec 04

Barn Dances / Country Dancing are and have been, a feature of something in England for a long time.
1. Were most of the dances and the tunes collected from a living tradition towards the end of the 19C?
2. Was this tradition rural or urban?
3. Were they in danger of dying out?
4. Did they become institutionalised through the EFDSS?

Just received EFDSS mags and felt curious.
