Scottish Country Dancing Dictionary

What's New

Although the bulk of the content of this site remains unchanged, or changes only trivially, we add new pages continually and make material revisions to existing pages whenever necessary. The more recent additions and revisions are categorized and listed below.

Often hidden from the viewer, and usually affecting almost every page, we also modify the coding of the site for purposes of improving its effectiveness and to meet ever-changing regulations though this does not change the content. Thus it is unpractical to use an automatic process for identifying materially changed pages; the process has to be manual and so is fallible.

New Dance Instructions Pages

New dances are added and indexed in Dance Instructions A-Z Dance Cribs. Primarily, but not exclusively, these come from the approximately monthly update issued by the MiniCrib team; occasionally, we add a MaxiCrib or instructions from other sources. New Keith Rose Crib Diagrams for which we don't already have any written crib are also listed here.
