Dances We Do

These are dances we do almost every week to "warm up" for the first hour (except when we have beginner classes).  Some of the links are to YouTube sites where you can watch the dance done by "folk" (meaning not performance quality so watch the leader if you can).  Some of the links are to pdf files of the instructions.
