View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Here's the second child in the Step Lively family, a collection of old and new dances that are favourites of dancers in Canada. Many of these dances are widely known across the country, but are rarely seen in collections. Each dance includes a short history, with tips for successful teaching and many include musical notation. Seven of the dances are suitable for primary grades, the rest are best done with intermediate grades, or adult or family groups. The CD which accompanies the book contains 14 tunes skillfully arranged, impeccably recorded and irresistably danceable. All the tunes are either common in the Canadian fiddle repertoire or were written by Canadian musicians, including originals by Marian Rose, Daniel Thonon (of Ad Vielle Que Pourra), and Andy de Jarlais. In fact, Step Lively Two stands on its own as a great listening CD. The recording was engineered by Juno-award-winning Paul Gitlitz, best known for his work with Charlotte Diamond, and features many of the same quality musicians as the first: Mike Schway - fiddle and diatonic accordion Calvin Cairns - fiddle Marian Rose - piano, accordion and vocals Michael Hambrook - clarinet and sax Ginny Snowe - bass Dave Jonsson - drums Paul Gitlitz - backup vocals Some of the dances in the book are: Heel Toe Polka La Bastringue Brandy Fifty-Fifty Waltz
