An Introduction to English Country Dancing, by Henry and Jacqui Morgenstein
From Henry and Jacqui Morgenstein, a 40 minute DVD introducing English Country Dancing. It teaches some of the basic moves found in many English Country dances; explains the structure of the dance; entertains you with information about the history and practice of English country dancing. The DVD has a "scene selection" menu so you can easily find the lesson you want to go back to. Many of the dances were done to recorded CDs from the great ECD band, Bare Necessities. Two that were recorded in Emmanuel College in Cambridge UK were to live music by Notorious (Eden MacAdam-Somer and Larry Unger). None of the video was scripted so all the incidents just happened as the result of dancers enjoying themselves.
Henry Morgenstein is the caller and the narrator (voice over).
