Odd Delights

This is a collection of two dozen dances which John Gardiner-Garden composed in many different styles and formations in response to requests, challenges, needs and whim. The dance descriptions are not to be found in any of the Lost Dances or Historic Dance volumes. All entries include full dance instructions, dance summaries, extensive notes and either chorded music or directions to appropriate music. The cover illustrations are from the author's collection of antique dance prints.
