Hi again everyone! The subject of today’s post is a project that I had some participation in. English Country Dancing Vol. 1. It is an instructional video on old English/Scottish social/Civil War period dances; also touching on some of the etiquette of the day. Here is the synopsis:
It is always interesting to learn more about the bygone days and about the everyday life of our ancestors. Of all the historical arts that I have researched, one of my favorites is the old time dancing dating back to the eighteenth century up through the Civil War. With so much pointless amusement out there, the old dances are a wonderful way to have good old fashioned fun! Recently, I completed an instructional documentary that combines the beauty of the Civil War/Victorian era dances with my love for history. This 30 minute film covers 6 period dances complete with step-by-step instructions, dance excerpts, and historical information on etiquette and customs of the day. For pictures of the production process and screen shots of the finished product, visit the following link or check out my website at www.repairingthebreachmedia.wordpress.com
