ACCESS

Because of the low current uptake, we plan to close the site on 20th December 2017. The last date for new subscriptions/purchases is 30th June 2017. The following access options are available (involving a quick and easy on-line process using PayPal, with clear on-line instructions given as you go along – further information regarding the Library, subscriptions, purchases etc. and terms & conditions is provided below):

OPTION 1 – A subscription for on-line access: Cost = £8.50 – for access until 20th December 2017 (the cost for a year’s subscription was previously set at £16.99 but we are reducing the purchase cost pro-rata on a quarterly basis to reflect the reduced time remaining until the site closes). To purchase this subscription, click the Buy Now Button below


This gives instant on-line access to the Library (around 2000 scripts in all – what’s there is what’s listed on the Dance List/Latest Pages). The scripts are provided as pdf files, which can be viewed on-line and/or downloaded onto your hard drive or mobile devices for viewing off-line and printing. Incredible value for money – works out at less than 1 pence per script. You can purchase this subscription at any time which then provides access until 20th December 2017. Further information is provided below (*).

OPTION 2 – A hard copy of the scripts on DVD disc (with FREE on-line access): Cost = £39 (inclusive of packing & postage). To purchase this package, click the Buy Now Button below


The disc contains all scripts in the Library (around 2000 scripts in all – what’s there is what’s listed on the Dance List/Latest Pages). The scripts are provided as pdf files, which can be read and printed directly from the disc, and can be saved in bulk onto your hard drive or mobile devices. This avoids the need for downloading individual scripts which can be time consuming, and may be particularly attractive given the future closure of the site. The disc also comes with a free subscription for on-line access until 20th December 2017 – as well as being a useful resource in itself, the on-line access will ensure immediate access to the scripts whilst waiting for your disc. The order form will require a postal address for despatch purposes. Further information is provided below (*).

* Additional Information, FAQ’s and Terms & Conditions etc:

The Script Library and the DVD disc above contains all official UK prize-winning dances from 1980 to 2006, most of the prize-winners from the seventies and most of the significant dances from before that, plus a selection of non-prize-winners and unofficial dances, some never previously released. This gives a comprehensive archive of the so called “golden years” of sequence dancing, plus a lot more. It covers most of the popular sequence dances enjoyed by social dancers across the world, including some very old dances, plus most dances of interest to current medallists and competitors. There are around 2000 scripts in total. This encompasses all genres ie Classical, Modern & Latin sequences. Indeed, we have the largest electronic on-line archive in the world and offer the best value for money available in purchasing scripts. The Script Library and the associated DVD disc does not contain video demonstrations, just scripts. The scripts included on the disc are those listed on the Dance List/Latest Pages.

The Dance List Pages/Latest should be consulted to determine the availability of particular scripts that you may require (what’s listed there is what’s available). Those who purchase and then claim to have not realised that scripts of unlisted dances are not available will not be provided with a refund.

If you have any requests for scripts for particular dances not already in the Library, we will endeavour to include them in the future, subject to availability (having said that, virtually everything of any significance is already there – and please note we will not publish recent dances).

We do not supply individual scripts or send scripts in paper form through the post.

Purchases are to be made on-line using PayPal, which is easy to use (there are on-screen instructions as you go along) , totally secure, and the whole process takes less than 5 minutes. All major credit and debit cards are accepted with PayPal. You can pay wherever in the world you are – the currency conversion is done automatically (but if you would like to calculate the costs in your local currency, you can use our currency converter). There are no fees for using these payment facilities. If you don’t have a PayPal account, it is easy to set one up during your purchase.

To make a purchase, simply click on the Buy Now Button for the purchase option of your choice and follow the on-screen instructions. For both standard subscriptions (option 1) and disc purchases (Option 2), you will be directed to an on-line purchase form, and then to a registration form. Upon completion of the registration form you will be automatically logged in to the site (new subscribers will be directed to our Welcome Page). Please note that the registration form requires you to select a username, password, AND an E mail address (omitting any of these or not submitting the form at all will prevent automated registration – we do still set up/update your account manually in this event, but for new members there will be a short delay in accessing the scripts).

Renewals: Renewals are not automatic and should be carried out simply by making a new purchase as before using the appropriate Buy Now Button, and then registering as before. Subscriptions are cancelled automatically at midnight on the day prior to the expiry date. Reminders will not necessarily be sent out.

Registration Options: There are two registration options presented, one for “new members” (that is those who don’t currently have an active subscription – this includes newbies and those with a subscription that has expired that they now wish to renew), and one for “current members” (those who still have an active subscription and wish to renew in advance, or those with a standard subscription that is still active and who now wish to purchase Option 2). If you don’t select the correct registration option, the automated registration process may be blocked – we do still set up/update your account manually in this event, but for “new members” there will be a short delay in accessing the scripts. If you are unsure of the status of your subscription then please don’t hesitate to contact us.

“New members” will be granted access until 20th December 2017 or to 1 year pro-rata from their purchase date whichever is the earlier. “Current members” will have their subscription extended until 20th December 2017 or by 1 year pro-rata from the end of their current subscription whichever is the earlier.

Purchases are acknowledged immediately by a E mail from PayPal (which can be used as a receipt). After registration, “new members” will be sent an automated E mail from us confirming your log in details. For “current members”, there is no automated E mail from us, but your subscription is automatically extended and you can continue to access the Library using your current username and password, as before.

Discs are dispatched within 24 hours and sent by 2nd class post within the UK (which usually takes 2 – 3 working days) and by Air Mail Oversees (which usually takes 1 – 3 weeks, depending on location). Allow extra time around Christmas. It is strongly recommended that you make a backup of the disc immediately on receipt (the files can be copied in bulk from the disc directly onto your PC’s etc.).

It is not possible to make a purchase by any means other than PayPal (E-cheques are accepted by PayPal, but there is some delay whilst the cheque clears before we can set up your access).

Refunds may be issued at our discretion (but note there is now an admin fee of £0.20 for all refunds that is retained by PayPal).

If you forget your password, we can’t tell you what it is (as we don’t have it), you will need to reset it using the “Lost Password” function on the site (although we can tell you what your username is if you’ve forgotten that too !).

It is highly recommended that you don’t share your username/password with any third party as it may affect your own access (the number of IP addresses that can access the site on any given username is limited to two per day).

We reserve the right to take the site offline temporarily for essential maintenance and upgrades etc. (however, in the seven years it has been running there has been less than 10 days of downtime). We also reserve the right to close the site down permanently at any time should it become financially unviable to maintain it (eg if the software suddenly stops functioning and we cannot afford to upgrade it).

Any Questions ? If you have any problems with purchasing, or if you have any other queries or comments, you can contact us direct by E mail at sdscripts@gmx.com.
