Various essays (or articles if you think “essays” is too pretentious) on different aspects of dance, mainly by me.

I'm very pleased that other people have let me publish their material.  Bruce Hamilton has two of his sets of notes here: “When you're not the caller” and “Giving and receiving feedback”.  Bob Brand has his series of articles “Pills to purge mediocrity”.  Mary Railing has a fascinating essay on the “Origins of English Country Dance” and Anne Daye has an equally fascinating “History of Country Dancing”.

In August 2021 I added Anne's essay on the The English foundations of the French Cotillon, long supposed to be a French invention — read it rather than just accepting the conventional view!
