Christmas Carol Dance Book

This beautiful 76 page A4 size book is a must for any music or dance enthusiast and will give years of pleasure.
The word 'carol' once implied dance as much as song and to bring the two dimensions back together John Garden has spent 2 years devising, testing and refining 64 social dances in dozens of different formations to fit well-loved Christmas carols from the last 7 centuries. The dances all work exceedingly well, are lots of fun, and, in their style and figures, echo the various carols' historical origins and lyrical storyline. The meticulously well-layed out book contains easy-to-follow instructions to all the dance, full carol lyrics, chorded musical notation, historical notes and wonderful illustrations.
