CD and DVD Index

Index of Sanna Longden’s CDs and DVD/VIDEOS

Dear Friends: It may be confusing to know which of the five CDs go with which of the seven DVD/videos, and which of the 85 dances are on those products.  This is because the whole series began impulsively in 1990 with videos in an attempt to offer teachers a visual rendering of the written notes, and has enjoyably evolved through the next 16 years to the resources below. We hope these lists will help.
