Kent Davis English Country Dance Resources (45) RE: English Country Dance Resources 23 Jul 10

Thanks to all of you for your help.

Manitas at home, we weren't familiar with the term "Playford dancing". I will enjoy investigating that further.

greg stephens, I haven't had to shoot any young whippersnappers YET. Usually one look at me and they go scurrying.

Will Fly, My daughter will be thrilled by your comment. She loves Jane Austen. She made her dress for a harp performance at a re-enactment at Blennerhasset Island Historical State Park. I believe the "date" was around 1806. (Feel free to laugh at us "colonists", who think that 1806 was a long time ago.)

Chris P, Sorry for not being clear in my reference to the wheat and the chaff. I was not referring to any kind of dancing as "chaff". I was saying that there are lots of books, DVDs, and web sites available, not all of equal quality, and I wanted hep in picking out the best resources, the "wheat". Thanks for identifying some other names for this type of dance.

Guest, leenia, We will look into contra dancing. Thank you.

Desert dancer, Thanks very much. What a treasure trove.

Again, thank you all.
