Bush Dance! Kit

Bush Dance! KitThe completely revised and updated BUSH DANCE Kit contains all the very best dances from our original best-selling 3 volume set – for less than half the price!

In this superb book and CD kit, we present 30 of the all-time favourite bush, folk and colonial dances, all fully explained with easy-to-understand instructions and cartoon illustrations. The text is supported by a comprehensive glossary and every dance has a suggested ‘dance call’ included in the instructions.

All the music and ‘calls’ for the dances are contained on 2 excellent companion CDs (also available on cassette) featuring Rantan Bush Band and Mike Jackson. The music for each dance is played all the way through with the overdubbed ‘calls’ recorded for at least once through the dance.

Not only do you get the top 30 bush dances, but you will also find a complete social history of the development of dance in Australia from 1788 to the present era. This is ideal for teachers who wish to combine social studies with their dance lessons! The book also has charts, tables and chorded musical scores – making BUSH DANCE the most complete and useful kit of its kind! The BUSH DANCE Kit is an absolute must for every school and is used in thousands of schools in Australia, New Zealand, Britain and the USA as well as many other countries.
