Description

This book looks at the practicalities of maypole dancing. Designed for teachers with little or no experience of teaching dance, the traditional dances are laid out in a clear and easy to use format with photos, diagrams and a Dance at a Glance feature.
Maypole dancing is constantly changing and growing, and so a number of modern dances are also included, graded from simple to challenging. Issues of inclusivity, creativity and cross-curricular work are addressed in detail, along with non-ribbon dances from the Victorian and Tudor periods which are great for bringing history to life.
A website and lively CD complete the package.
“Easy to use manual, even for a novice” – Folkestone Primary Academy

I am very happy to recommend this for anyone wanting the essential information on how to lead maypole dancing with young people and adults alike.” – Rachel Elliott, Education Director, English Folk Dance and Song Society
“This is the answer to our prayers! A really well written book and entertaining music CD to get people of all ages maypole dancing” – Paul James, Formally Halsway Manor, National Centre for the Folk Arts
