»Featured Dances« recommended by the RSCDS

Every year, the RSCDS recommends some dances for inclusion in social programmes. It is hoped that this will promote a sense of unity and familiarity between branches, groups, and dancers all over the world. (It also seems that they want us to try some dances that for some reason or other never seem to show up on programmes on their own merit, but that's that :^).)

Refer also to the RSCDS website. Books and CDs for these dances are available from RSCDS Headquarters (among other places).

Incidentally, what's so great about Jimmy's Fancy that it has made the »featured dances« list for the second time in four years?

Update: With the publication of the core repertoire of dances, the Society seems to have gone off the idea of publishing annual lists of dances.
