Questionnaire Results-Video

dvd-label-mock up  This video I created shares some of the statistics from the Dance Questionnaire we posted a week ago.  The questionnaire will remain online, so encourage your friends to take it!

  This video is also the official “release” of a new organization, “Stately Steps.”  Stately Steps will now be the official website for future dancing videos and will also be the headquarters for a new dance instruction DVD series. We need help from people like you, so please go to the website and sign up for the newsletter:

Your Help Is Needed!


   We are asking for the input of our friends and readers by taking this quick survey about English Country Dancing.  I’ve edited close to 90 dances from events and lessons, but I’d like to create more instructional and professional videos in the future. If you’ve enjoyed some of these dancing videos then please participate in this survey and share it with your friends – or even post in on your blog! (see below)

  The survey is only 10–30 questions and only takes 5 minutes to complete:

Laura’s Waltz-Dance

I am very excited to be uploading this video, because I don't know of any other video of this dance in existence-or more accurately, online.
I've been trying to film this dance for over 3 months, but something always prohibited me from capturing it.  So, although this isn't the best portrayal of Laura's Waltz that I've seen, it'll do for now.
