"Sussex Tradition - in the Making"

An ex-member has written this collection of 6 dance notations of 1990's Sussex origin, with diagrams and suggested tunes, ready to bring to life. The dances include a processional street dance with repeating choruses, ones for teams of 8 or multiples of 4, spot dances and Sussex Garland which is for 5 dancers.

All these were performed amongst many others by Sussex Spinning Jenny during their 23 years as a clog team. These six dances are not archived anywhere else but can now go on a bookshelf as a custom to be passed down.

The cost is 6.50 including P&P.
