Dance-db-discuss -- Discussion of an on-line database for traditional contra dances, maybe more


About Dance-db-discuss
English (USA)

This list exists to facilitate discussions about an on-line database of contra dance information, including not only dance titles, composer names, and links to sources, but also information about the sequences of moves and transitions within a dance. It may further provide links to dance videos, the opportunity to comment on dance sequences, enter programs, etc.
While the initial focus is contra dances, the database may include the capability of supporting other related dances, whether circle mixers, squares, English Country Dances, or the like.
