Hello & Welcome: This site was set up in 2009 to ensure sequence dancers have access to the best possible material. We are now the world’s largest on-line archive of sequence dance scripts, with around 2000 scripts, covering the very best and most popular sequence dances. We also offer the best value for money available in purchasing scripts (works out at less than 1 pence per script). We think the site is a superb resource both for new and experienced dancers alike. The site and it’s linked facilities been designed to be streamlined, easy to navigate and with easy access to the scripts – we feel sure you’ll like it. If you’re on a mobile device and the site is not automatically showing in mobile mode, you can switch modes using the control in the Footer. Note that this site is a developmental version of our main site at www.sequencedancescripts.com, the idea being to have a place to develop new versions of the site for future years – it is currently a good mirror of our main site (basically the same site but with a new template and supposedly better mobile responsivity) and you are free to use it, you may even prefer it, but if you want to switch to our main site just click here.
The Script Library: Scripts are currently available for all official UK prizewinning dances from 1980 to 2009, most of the prize-winners from the seventies and most of the significant dances from before that, plus a selection of non-prize-winners and unofficial dances, some never previously released. The Library covers most of the popular sequence dances enjoyed by social dancers across the world, including some very old dances, plus most dances of interest to our current medallists and competitors. The Library encompasses both Classical Sequence (or Old Time) and Modern & Latin Sequence. The best sequence dances are, in our view, those originating in the late sixties, seventies, and eighties, and we now have a very comprehensive archive from these “golden years”, plus a lot more.
If you are looking for a particular dance, there is a search facility provided, or you can look through our A – Z listings here. To help you identify the best dances, the lists include my own personal rating – a star system is used – plus there are some commentaries available here. The library is being updated on an ongoing basis. Requests will be considered and honoured where possible (we have most scripts from the last 70 years, but please note we will not publish very recent dances). Having said that, virtually everything of any significance for sequence dancers is there already. New additions are first posted to the Latest Page for easy tracking.
The Scripts: Scripts are provided as pdf files which can be saved to your devices and viewed and printed off-line. Our scripts are based on the original ones written by the arrangers, and according to standard scripting conventions as adopted by the major UK teaching associations. Some of our scripts are available free to view via our Samples Page. An information sheet offering general guidance on reading scripts is available here. For a list of abbreviations used in the scripts, click here.
Access to Scripts: For details of how to access the scripts, click here.
Monthly Dance Feature: We have in the past released free-to-view scripts for a selection of our personal favourites on a roughly monthly basis – for more details please go to our Feature Page).
We have compiled a list of links for sequence dance demo videos, together with links to popular music suitable for sequence. These are available on our Videos Page. Demonstration videos are also available for many of the previous featured dances, and we hope more videos will become available in the future.
Technical Note: The site is compatible with all up-to-date PC/laptop/mobile browsers tested so far. We have now installed SSL encryption for added security and protection of your personal data.
We hope you find these resources useful, and that they will help ensure Sequence Dancing has a healthy future.
