Thread Name: the teaching of dancing
Subject: RE: the teaching of dancing
Newcastle? Basic??? I've always thought of it as an A-level milestone. I have to admit I don't call it much these days: Sharp's version is the one everybody knows but it's flawed, as later interpretations show.
I'm not knocking Sharp BTW, I think he did an absolutely brilliant job with what he had available, but he was a pioneer, and a lot more material has come to light since his time. And we ourselves also have the benefit of 100 years of dance experience and 50 of dance composition.
