ANNOUNCE: `Dancing at the Mill', a new book of dances and music

Message 21439 · Anselm Lingnau · 6 Jun 2000 14:03:45 · Top

My new book of dances and music is finally available:

DANCING AT THE MILL

Nine new Country Dances in the Scottish tradition
devised by Anselm Lingnau =

The dances in this book were inspired by people and events around the
Proitzer M=FChle (Mill of Proitze), a wonderful place to go for Scottish
dance workshops and similar events in the north of Germany (between
Uelzen and Salzwedel, or Hannover, Hamburg, and Berlin on a large-scale
map). =

The book contains instructions for the dances and music for their
suggested tunes. Most tunes have been specially composed for this book,
but some traditional tunes are also included. =

The dances are: =

1. The Swinmark Sixsome (32-bar reel for six dancers) =

2. The Millwater (32-bar strathspey for 4 couples in a straight set) =

3. The Road to Proitze (32-bar reel for 4 couples in a straight set) =

4. The Gnomes' Stone (32-bar jig for 3 couples in a straight 4-couple s=
et) =

5. Dancing at the Mill (32-bar strathspey for 3 couples in a straight
4-couple set) =

6. The Silly Sisters (32-bar reel for 3 couples in a straight 4-couple =
set) =

7. The Mill-Ennium Welcome (32-bar jig for two couples facing each othe=
r
round the room) =

8. Off the Ground (32-bar reel for 3 couples in a straight 4-couple set=
) =

9. The Flower of the Mill (128-bar medley for 4 couples in a square set=
) =

All these dances are new and previously unpublished, except for The Road
to Proitze, which has appeared as a Merry Dancers Leaflet.
