ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is a CD of music to support the teaching of: Step with Annette

Old Style Step Dancing is believed to date back to the mid 1700s, with the dances and steps being passed on by travelling Dance Masters. Modern-day masters can trace the lineage of their steps directly back to those of the 18th century. This form of dancing was (and is) danced informally, described by Michael Tubridy as "a self-satisfying form of art, and can give the performer a great sense of satisfaction at being able to beat out a rhythm on the floor, or get up and "dance a step" at a ceili or party or friend's wedding, not to mention its tremendous value as a very fulfilling form of healthy exercise. Wearing comfortable shoes and practicing your steps in a relaxed fashion for maybe a half-hour every day, will give you great enjoyment, and do wonders for your general well being, without the risk of damaging your feet!"

Annette Collins is an accomplished dancer and teacher of Old Style Steps, teaching and performing with Mark Prescott, both from their home in Ireland and abroad.
