Preserving cultural influences, this unique collection of American community folk dances and their historical origins are appropriate for educational and recreational groups of all ages and abilities that gather for social barn dancing fun. No previous experience is needed to be able to teach, dance, and/or call the 46 dances described in this book. As many school curriculums require dance, rhythm and music, preferably integrated with cultural and historical validity, this book/DVD/two CD package provides authentic fiddle music, sheet music, folklore and facts about the dances and easy-to-follow step descriptions.The dances in this invaluable collection and the tunes are the same in most instances as those that have been done in America, Canada, Australia and the UK for over 350 years. Social folk dancing has withstood the test of time because it appeals to one's need and sense of community, family and friendship combined with the sound of the joyful music played on fiddles and other folk instruments. The music for the dances are included on two CDs bound in the book. The music is provided both with prompting calls and without calls. A 30-minute DVD is included to show how all ages can quickly learn and share community values. This comprehensive package encourages interdisciplinary learning as students can be challenged to not only learn about the historical context and do the dances, but also play the tunes.
