The dance video archive displays videos of dances from the member organizations of the Country Dance and Song Society (CDSS). They are intended as a resource for learning and preserving this wonderful heritage.

If you have a video you would like to add to the archive, please upload it to one of the public video sharing web sites and send a link to Bob Green at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Include dance instructions, and any background information or comments you wish to share. Please be mindful of copyright and intellectual property rights considerations.

The usefulness of this site will depend largely on the level of participation of the the whole traditional dance community. People dance for many reasons and have different interpretations of how dances are done. Where videos of different variants of a dance are available, they will be posted. The broader the sources of editorial and technical information, the more useful the site is likely to be. It is also certain that it will contain errors from time to time, and the accuracy of the site will be greatly improved if these are pointed out and corrections suggested. It is not the intention of this site to be an authority on any of the dances, but rather a repository for some of the material available.

Currently, this site is being hosted as a sub-domain of, the website for the Childgrove Country Dancers in St. Louis.
