I feel strongly that when naming or describing a dance, it is disrespectful
to omit the name of the artist/deviser. In other fields of art (e.g.
music, sculpture, painting, literature, film) such disrespect is very rare.

I agree with Harry Ways that Stella's Virginia dance Programme is excellent
in listing both the source publication and the deviser.

I hope that Anselm will add the devisers' names to the dances with RSCDS
book as source; is there any reason to treat these differently?

Happy dancing,

Eric
