DANCE DIAGRAMS

Over the years, Keith has created a considerable number of dance diagrams. Some of these are shown in the links to crib sheets associated with events and also in newsletters. Most of these diagrams can also be found at both the Scottish Country Dance Database at http://my.strathspey.org/dd/index/ and the Scottish Country Dancing Dictionary: http://www.scottish-country-dancing-dictionary.com/dance-cribs.html
An index to the symbols used is available here: SYMBOLS
