The Sunday Class Dance Book 1 with accompanying CD by     Marian Andersonís Scottish Dance Band
The   Sunday   Class   came   into   being   on   the   last   Sunday   in   January   2010   with   the   dream   of   booking Marian Anderson   &   her   Band   to   play   at   the   first   Dance.   The   inaugural Annual   Sunday   Class   Dance was   on   the   last   Sunday   (of   course!)   of   March   2011   where   Marian,   Max   &   Issy   played   to   a   sell-out event.
The Book contains full instructions and crib diagrams (by Keith Rose) for 15 new dances by 6 local devisers, with sheet music for 5 original tunes. On the CD there are 15 tracks for dances in the Book plus Marian’s own set for John Drewry’s ‘Ramadan-ce’, and a bonus track, ‘Barry & Doreen’s Continental Capers’ (with dance instructions and sheet music included in the CD booklet).

Track listing
The   fortnightly   Sunday   classes   have   a   dedicated   and   loyal   following   with   some   members   regularly   travelling   considerable   distances to   attend   and   the   ‘NewsE-mail’   issued   afterwards   is   now   sent   to   well   over   a   hundred   addressees. Amongst   these   members   are   some very   talented   dance   devisers   and   a   composer   (David   Page)   and   so,   logically,   the   next   project   should   be   our   own   TSC   Book   with accompanying CD - and I could ask no-one finer to record it than Marian Anderson and her Band.
After   a   tremendous   amount   of   effort,   the   long-anticipated   TSC   Dance   Book   1 with   accompanying   CD   by   Marian   Anderson’s   Scottish   Dance   Band   is   finally launched!
