Mr. Beveridge's Maggot

Here is a list of the dances done in P&P95, with links to the dance instructions, tune for the song, and a video with that part of the movie, if available. is a very useful website, with moving diagrams of the choreography (with music) as well as dance instructions. If there's a dance that just has a link and no "{instructions}" and "{tune}", it will be taking you to that website. When you follow the links, click "start" at the top right of the middle box to see the diagram, and you will see a little box over on the top right of the web page (that says "Choose a Dance")--click "Notations" for the dance instructions.

Unfortunately, only a few of the dances about to be listed are available on that website, so I will link to somewhere else with the dance instructions (which will usually mention whatever was done differently in P&P), as well as a link to another page that has the tune.

If you are new to English Country Dancing, this page may be of some use in explaining what the instructions mean. Miss Marianne has also had a bit of experience with ECD so if you have questions she would be happy to try her best to answer. :)
