Scottish Country Dancing Dictionary


Reuben Freemantle is the author of the source document, A Dictionary of Scottish Country Dancing, and so is personally responsible for the content of that part of this website. Within Dance instructions - Dance cribs, he is the author of the MaxiCrib Dance Instructions and of all Dance Notes and Dance Information unless otherwise identified; he is also the author of the original material within SCD Miscellany. As the enthusiast for crib diagrams, he also has primary responsibility for incorporating Keith Rose's material.

Laurence Abbott is the webmaster responsible for the design, implementation and maintenance of this site. He also has primary responsibility for the transcription of the MiniCrib material and other external crib material, for selection of the Dance Information on many Dance Crib pages and for the correct linking to YouTube videos, but has no control over the sources of these.

Reuben is the single contact for any comment on the accuracy, accessibility, comprehensibility or completeness of the material on this website.
He can also offer alternative means of payment if you would like to donate without disclosing your financial information over the Internet.
