Wonderful dance music provided by The Coalbrook Band, featuring Helen, Greg, Jennifer & Catherine Strutt and Chris Duncan
The music is a special feature for the Ball with the Coalbrook Band handling the large diversity in dance styles with great accomplishment. Again this year we will enjoy the musical talents of the entire Strutt family (Helen & Greg, Jennifer & Catherine) plus the great fiddle expertise of Chris Duncan. A little touch of Irish and Scottish, Colonial expertise to burn, some Welsh influences, 17th English - and who knows what other surprises may be in store for us? There will undoubtedly be a Hambo snuck in before one of the breaks!
pdf Ball Flyer & Booking Form can be downloaded from the Maitland Ball site
Dance instructions will be made available in PDF format once the programme has been devised and the specific versions of each dance have been determined.
Keith Wood has animations of numerous dances on his Dance Kaleidoscope Web site (http://www.dancekaleidoscope.org.au/dance.html). (Note: you may have to use a browser such as Google Chrome instead of Internet Explorer).
Dancers should be cautious when using viewing any of the ball dances on YouTube etc. or using instructions found on the internet as different versions exist, particularly for the Playford dances and the multi-figure quadrilles.

The Final Word
We can't reiterate strongly enough ...
Everyone benefits by your attendance at the practices. We can all then relax
and not have to teach the dances while they are in progress
