Welcome to BillMaxineRoss.com

We hope that you find this website a great resource for teaching Round Dance Figures.  Get started by clicking "Rhythms" in the left-side menu.

We have finished writing teaching dances for most of the rhythms. However, we are still adding review dances to all the rhythms.

Assume that the speed is unchanged on any dance where there is no mention of changing the speed on the dance.

If you have any questions about teaching dances, please Contact Us.

Alternate Dances

We have written alternate dances which can be used to replace dances where the music may be hard to obtain. Thus a dance with the label 2-7a can be used to replace a dance with the label 2-7. The alternate dance introduces the same new figures as the original dance. However the choreography for the alternate dance will not be the same as the original dance. Thus if you have the music for the original dance you could use the alternate dance as a review dance which does not add any new figures.

 

Music That Can Be Downloaded

We have been trying to find music for the teaching dances that can be downloaded from internet sites such as I Tunes and Casa Musica. Where the music for a dance can't be downloaded we first try to find an alternate recording of the same music. If we are able to find another recording of the same music we write a revised cue sheet for this music and include both the original cue sheet and the new cue sheet under the dance name. If we are not able to find an alternate recording we can download, we write an alternate dance as described above. We have finished this work and you should be able to download all the music you will need for all of the rhythms.
