There are several
thousand sequence type dances which have been published and I have tried to
compile a list of as many as possible. This list includes some 3,500 of
the normal UK sequence dances as well as many party type dances and also
sequence dances from the Southern Hemisphere. We have not included normal
Line Dances but would refer you to line dancing sites.
The dances which I have described are 30+ years ago, many of the authors are
unknown and the OBBD does not have any rules for sequence dancing before
1975. One of the dance scripts publishers, Brockbank Lane of Carlisle, has
E-mailed me and objected to the publication of these scripts. I have however
taken this up with the BDC and received a reply from Bryan Allen, the President
of the BDC. It appears that a lot of the script holders are not known and none
of the dances listed have the copyright of the British Dance Council. He says
that caution should be exercised before any intellectual copyright material is
produced and I am of course aware of this and will take off the scripts if any
of the copyright holders (but not publishers) object.
The list which follows is arranged in alphabetic order by style of dance then
alphabetic by name. Where possible we have included inventors and
dates. It is divided into three groups for speed of loading (even so it
may take a short while) . Note this list is up to 2010 and revised
periodically. It does not necessarily show the very latest dances, for these see
the competition dates page. The revision date is shown on the top of each
file. If you would like to download the full file to save and process at
leisure in your own spreadsheets etc, then it can be downloaded as a .csv -comma
separated file if you click

- All the UK dance organisations and individual inventive dance promoters since
about 1985 have claimed copyright for their particular dances, and the British
Dance Council does not allow the videoing of such dances. This means that
almost all of the present dances are covered and it is strictly it is a breach of
copyright in the UK to teach, demonstrate, video or to copy the scripts of most of these
dances without the permission of the copyright holder. We regret we are
therefore unable to supply copies of any scripts.
