Dance Instructions and Videos

There are instructions and videos for many dances on the internet. As you look through various sites, please keep in mind that there have been many reconstructions and interpretations of historical dances. As such, other groups may not execute the dances in exactly the same manner that we have here. No one can say for sure who might have the correct interpretation. As long as we're all dancing together and having fun, it shouldn't manner which way we are doing it. When visiting other groups, remember, when in Rome do as the Romans do. And SMILE!

Playford Wiki -- Playford's Progeny - lots of dance instructions here, and you can add more!

The English Dancing Master by John Playford - a scanned version of the 1651 edition. John Playford published the first book of ECD in 1651. Many more editions followed. So when we talk about a dance being a "Playford" dance, we mean that it was published in one of his books. But he was not the only person to publish dances.
