I have opened a social network site for Eastbourne Folk Dance
Club as a place for folk dancers to meet , discuss and share everything to do with folk dance. This can be found on weblink:-
On My Page (i.e. Brian Carter), I have input on my Youtube
Sidebar Widget Application some folk dance step videos which I have linked from my folkdancevideos youtube account.
I have just started a new website on which to add folk dance
music found on the web, the folk dance scripts for these, and the original music source.
I only started this website
in April 2007 and will add more numbers and dances as I find them.
