Dont Stop Calling: A Guide to Leading English Country Dance Classes for Older Adults

by Judy Chaves

A CDSS Pubication

Judy Chaves and Val Medve lead a weekly English dance class at a retirement community in Vermont; this book is a compilation of their experience of what is needed for a dance class with older adults to be a success. The author writes knowledgably about the issues of safety, equipment, tempo, teaching, and starting a class, and includes adaptations of four circle dances, six set dances, and 26 longways English dances. Many of the issues and their solutions can be applicable to other special needs dancers.
