ACCESS

Unlimited access to the Library Scripts is available for a one-off payment of £39.99. To purchase, click the Buy Now Button below and follow the on-screen instructions:


Payment is via a secure on-line payment process, which is quick and easy to use. This is a one-off payment with no recurring payments or auto-renewals. Because of the uncertain future of this site, it may not be possible to make a purchase after 31st March 2020 (see below *).

The scripts will be sent to you using the popular file-sharing facility Dropbox. A link will be sent to your specified E mail address within 24 hours of purchase. From this you can download all of the files directly to your device in bulk and in one click, and once you have them they are yours to keep (no time limits). You do not need to register with Dropbox nor do you need to have the Dropbox or any other app installed on your device. For more information about Dropbox, see below **.

This purchase also comes with free on-line access to the Script Library via this website which is guaranteed for the lifetime of the site (see below *). Access is to website is set up in an automated way immediately upon purchase, so enabling instant access to scripts whilst awaiting your Dropbox link as well as providing a useful on-going tool for on-line access.

The Script Library has over 2000 scripts in all – what’s included with this purchase is what’s listed on the Library Pages . The scripts are provided as pdf files, which can be viewed on-line and downloaded onto your hard drive or mobile devices for viewing off-line and printing. All of these scripts are also all included in the Dropbox download.

We believe this is the best value for money available in purchasing scripts.

* Those purchasing will be guaranteed on-line access to this site until at least 31st March 2020 and will be granted free access beyond that time for as long as the site remains on-line. I have currently purchased web space until 31st March 2020 – I may keep the site on-line beyond that time subject to financial viability, but this depends on the level of interest in the site going forward (at the moment, the signs are not encouraging). Closure of the site will not in any way affect your access to previously downloaded scripts (whether downloaded from the site or from Dropbox, once downloaded they’re yours to keep). Please note however that when the site closes, it will not be possible to make a purchase, so if you want to purchase, I’d advise doing so prior to the 31st March 2020.

Please note that owing to the uncertain future of the site the annual subscriptions that we used to offer are no longer available. Also, discs are no longer available.

Further information is provided below.

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

We use an on-line check-out which is secure, takes less than 5 minutes to use, and gives clear on-screen instructions as you go along. 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 this currency converter).

After clicking on the Buy Now button, you will be directed to an on-line purchase form – purchases are acknowledged immediately by automated E mail (which can be used as a receipt). The purchase form requires an E mail address to be supplied.

Payment Options: You can pay either by using a PayPal account or directly using your credit/debit card (to pay directly by card, choose the Guest Check-Out/Pay by Card option). All major credit and debit cards are accepted. If you don’t have a PayPal account but would like to pay by this method, it is easy to set one up during your purchase, just follow the on-screen instructions. It is not possible to make a purchase by cash or cheque.

Following completion of the purchase form, you will be directed back to our website to complete a registration form so that we can set up your online access. If you pay using a PayPal account you will be automatically directed back to our site. For those paying directly by card, you won’t be automatically directed back to our site, although you will have the option to do so. (Please note that if you choose not to return directly to our website, the automated registration will be blocked – in this event, we will still process your order and register you manually, but there may be a short delay in your accessing the scripts).

Registration: Please note that the registration form requires you to select a username, password, AND an E mail address (omitting any of these from the required fields will again block the automated registration – we do still process your order and register you manually in this event, but there may be a short delay in your getting on-line access to the scripts). For security reasons we advise that you don’t use a username/password combination that you use on other sites.

Registration Options: There are two registration options presented, one for “new members” (that is those who aren’t currently registered including those with lapsed subscriptions), and one for “current members” (those who currently have an active subscription and are wanting to upgrade). If you don’t select the correct registration option, the automated registration process will be blocked – again, we do still process your order and register you manually in this event, but there may be a short delay to your on-line access.

Upon completion of the registration form you will be automatically logged in to the site (new members will be directed to our Welcome Page). New members will be sent an automated E mail from us confirming your log in details and will be automatically logged in and directed to our Welcome Page. For current members upgrading, there is no E mail – you simply get an on-screen message saying you are already registered – however, we will update your membership details so that your access is automatically extended, and you can then continue to access the Library using your current username and password, as before.

** Dropbox: Dropbox links are sent out within 24 hours of purchase. If you are a Dropbox user you can choose to download the files to your Dropbox folder. Alternatively, you can download direct to your device as you would for any other download. As standard, the download is a compressed zip file which you will need to unzip before use (eg by using the extract feature on Windows, and often done automatically). We recommend that you download as soon as possible after receiving the link. If you download direct to your Dropbox folder we recommend that you make a copy of the files elsewhere too (as this is can be more robust). Copying can be done in bulk and in one click. Indeed, the advantage of this type of system is that everything can be done in bulk as opposed to having to download individual files one by one (as per standard on-line access). It also avoids the increasing difficulties being experienced with using DVD’s and with postal services. To find out more about Dropbox click here.

Expiring Subscriptions: Subscriptions are cancelled automatically at midnight on the expiry date as specified at the time of purchase. Reminders are not sent out. If you wish to continue to access the site after this time you will need to make a new purchase under the terms currently available as above.

As a goodwill gesture we’d like to offer free online access for the lifetime of the site to those who have either purchased a disc in the past, or have subscribed at least three times in the last four years. From now on, those who still have online access and meet either of the above criteria will have their accounts automatically extended. Others whose accounts have already been deleted under the original terms of purchase will just need to let us know if they would like continued access and we’ll be happy to set up a new account for free.

If you are unsure of the status of your subscription then please contact us by E mail at sdscripts@yandex.com.

Refunds may be issued at our discretion (but note there is now an admin fee of £0.30 for all refunds that is retained by PayPal).

If you forget/lose your username and/or password, please use the lost password facility on the right of the webpage. If that fails, E mail us and we will restore your access. We can’t tell you what your current password is (as it’s encrypted in our database for security reasons), but we can give you a new one. Passwords can be changed at any time by accessing your personal settings (link in the top right hand corner under the log in field). We would advise you to keep a record of your log in details somewhere safe (eg by keeping our initial E mail message).

The Script Library contains all official UK prize-winning dances from 1980 to 2009, 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 does not contain video demonstrations, just scripts. The scripts available both on-line and via Dropbox are those listed on the Library/Latest Pages.

The Library 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 provide them/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 very recent dances).

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

Our electronic scripts are intended for personal use only and are copyright items that must not be shared or disseminated in any way – action will be taken for any infringement of rights.

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 four per day).

We reserve the right to take the site offline temporarily for essential maintenance and upgrades etc. (however, in the 8 years it has been running there has been less than 7 days of downtime).

Once your account is set up you will not receive any unsolicited E mails from us, neither for marketing nor for operational purposes. You can stay up to date on operational matters by reading our News Page and/or our Facebook Page.

You can read our Privacy Policy here. We advise you to read this before purchasing/registering. The registration form requests your consent to our use of personal information as outlined in this Privacy Policy.
