Thirty Popular Dances, Vol.Two


In stock

Over the last 12 months the Membership Services Committee has been hard at work compiling thirty dances chosen by RSCDS branches from around the world.

“The final selection includes some well-known dances containing what, at the time of their original publication, were novel formations but many of which are today commonplace. It is an honour to be bringing these dances and those previously unpublished by the RSCDS into one book. As in the original Thirty Popular, this book has grouped dances together by dance tempo. The committee felt it was important to include information about the dances, devisers, composers, music and creative stories – making aspects of our more recent dance history and growing tradition available to all.” Membership Services

The book is accompanied by two CDs: one CD of new recordings by James Coutts and his Scottish Dance Band and a second CD, a re-releasing RSCDS archive recordings.

    “I just wanted to say what a fascinating reading is the The Thirty Popular Dances Book 2 Tremendous amount of work. I think my favourite is the drawing of The Dream Catcher – innovative And I’m just listening to the CD with James Coutts and the band. Great tempo I’m looking forward to using it with my children’s class tonight.
    Please pass on my thanks to the committee and staff at Headquarters for the tremendous amount of work and time that has gone into the production of this Many thanks Doris “
