Recent additions to Library - Dances are continually being added to the Library, most recent additions at the top of the Page. So don’t forget to check back regularly (perhaps bookmark this Page). This includes archive dances from the golden years (as listed on the Future Page) plus non-prizewinning dances not previously released, and dances from more recent times (see below * this paragraph lists the newer dances that we will add over the coming year, one link to be activated per week):
BROOKLYN TANGO Robert & Louise Aldred: From a BDC Competition designed to produce championship level dances. My own view is that this is exactly the sort of routine that should be danced in mainstream sequence dancing. So I’ve decided to make a script available. There is also now an inventors video available free to view on BBL’s site – click here. I’ve written the script based on the video, so you’ll have here the rare opportunity to see a script that actually matches a video. The script is available in chart form from various teaching associations for something like £5 and it’s not possible to get a “normal” script anywhere. This script is free-to-view. Others from this series are also available to our members below .

SWINGING SAMBA Maurice Tait & Yvonne Stanley, 1978: Prolific arrangers of sequence dances. Maurice sadly passed away last week, so we thought we would publish this to honour Maurice & Yvonne’s contribution. Their RUMBA DUET which is excellent is available free-to-view from our Samples Page.
PARTY TRIO Vernon Kemp, 1987: Something for the party season. Arranged for two ladies and 1 man, this may be danced by three ladies, 2 men and one lady, or a couple who would dance the steps as man and lady. Basically anything goes.

ROYAL PARK TANGO Ted & Sue Burroughs, 1986: (NOB finalist, not previously released)
QUEENSWAY SAUNTER IDTA finalist 1982: this was later edited to make a prizewinning Saunter of some repute, but some parts that were very unusual were left behind and never been seen since. So I thought it was time this had an airing. Dances well to Abba’s I Do
