Dance Information

This dance is named after the village of Dunnington, approximately 4 miles (6 km) east from York city centre, England.

Dunnington village was an Anglo-Saxon settlement, and was listed in the 1086 Domesday Book as "Donniton", which, according to Mills, translates as an "estate associated with a man called Dun(n)a".

Dunnington was the category winner in the small town category (for settlements with populations over 3,000) of the 2014 Britain in Bloom competition and was also ranked among the top 20 towns as one of the best places in England and Wales to bring up a family, in a survey commissioned by Family Investments.
