The dances for Book 2 are a mixture of those by previous contributors with some from others who, for different reasons, have come into contact with The Sunday Class and it is a pleasure to be able to include their dances in this book.
On the CD there are 15 tracks for dances in the Book (track 3 is suitable for two dances) plusa bonus track, ‘Staircase in Styria’ (with dance instructions and sheet music included in the CD booklet), andthe Band’s favourite polka, before finishing with Alex Hodgson singing Auld Lang Syne.

The Sunday Class Dance Book 1, with accompanying CD, was released in October 2013 and its popularity grew rapidly, with sales figures in the first 6 months far exceeding any expectations. Planning for Book 2 started almost immediately.
The Book contains full instructions and crib diagrams (by Keith Rose) for 16 new dances by 9 local devisers, with sheet music for 8 original tunes.
