Original Dances

On the appended pages I , John Gardiner-Garden, plan to include brief instructions for the  200 plus dances which I've composed over the years. The instructions will be minus the music, extra notes and context which is offered my published versions but may still serve as useful pointers to useful dances. Though I've crafted these dances are dozens of different forms and in them have played with  hundreds of different choreographic ideas, I've opted for grouping them alphabetically on just 9 sub-pages. To get the best presentations of these dances and to support the art/craft of dance writing, please consider purchasing the book which I've said contains the dance, namely Lost Dances of Earthly Delights, Volume 1: Pleasures for Four Seasons, and Volume 2: Favourites for Four Settings, The Christmas Carol Dance Book or my Odd Delights.
I should also note, you don't need my permission to dance any of these compositions, but if you want to write to me to ask for any teaching tips or report how they went for you, you are very welcome.  Happy dancing!
