Members of the Education and Training Committee have devised a Beginners' Framework, which is a tool to help dancers and teachers select dances which are appropriate for less experienced dancers. All too often, teachers find it hard to identify suitable dances for beginners when making up class and dance programmes. The intention of this Framework is to suggest dances which can be selected to cover a variety of steps and formations, and has been divided into three levels of dancing experience. The Framework is not intended to be a definitive list but should be used as a guidance tool to help dancers enjoy dancing at their own level.
The Framework file is an Excel spreadsheet, and instructions for how to use it are on the first tab of the spreadsheet; the second tab contains the grid of dances and formations.
